In June, we hosted two webinars about correlative light-electron microscopy and cathodoluminescence spectroscopy. For those who missed the opportunity to see the webinar live or would like to look back, we have now published the cathodoluminescence webinar on our website. You can watch the webinar here, or click on the link below. (The CLEM webinar, published last month, can be seen here). Thanks to the success of these webinars, we have scheduled a new webinar to be hosted on the 29th of August about the application of cathodoluminescence for geology.
Cathodoluminescence (CL) spectroscopy is a powerful tool for the micro-characterization of rocks and minerals, providing unique contrasts complementary to other electron microscopy-based techniques, such as backscattered electron imaging and energy/wavelength dispersive x-ray spectroscopy.
In this webinar, we will discuss the physical background of CL emission in rocks, sample preparation, and the typical CL workflow. We will also show examples of how the technique can be applied to sedimentary rocks, gemstones, and zircons. This webinar will once again be hosted by our SPARC application specialist, Toon Coenen, and in collaboration with our Australian distributor, AXT.
