Find out more about Cathodoluminescence:



We plan to organize a 1-2 days workshop for students and PhD students before the conference to give an introduction into luminescence methods and applications in geosciences.  For that reason we plan a special issue of "Mineralogy and Petrology" with contributions of invited lead authors for review articles about special topics to be covered.
