Mineralogical Applications of Luminescence Techniques

  • Grahame Walker

Abstract

The interest shown in the luminescence of minerals by mineralogists, penologists and geochemists has been in the belief that it can reveal information not easily obtainable by other means. There is no doubt that cathodoluminescence can reveal detail in, for example, sedimentary rock-sections which cannot be seen under a penological microscope whether the illumination is polarized or not. There can be a distinct difference in the luminescence properties of authigenic and detrital components of the same mineral, and such differences are themselves useful in diagenetic studies. If, however, we ask the inevitable questions as to why the luminescence varies in colour and intensity and what actually causes it, we are entering the realm of solid-state physics. Yet if we knew the answers, much valuable geochemical information could, in all probability, be revealed.
