Cathodoluminescence intensity mapping: Adding an extra dimension to your research

Posted by Noor van der Veeken on Dec 8, 2016 11:00:00 AM

Those who understand the basic mechanisms of cathodoluminescence (CL) know that it is essentially a useful byproduct of electron microscopy. Fast electrons that are fired at a material cause it to become excited, thereby emitting photons of characteristic wavelength. CL intensity measurement is one of the many useful methods using CL emission to obtain valuable information about your sample complementary to other techniques such as SE, BSE, EBSD or EDS.

This article further explains how CL intensity mapping exactly works and how it can be employed in various types of research.
