Webinar: Cathodoluminescence Explained. Episode 1: An Introduction

In recent years the technique of cathodoluminescence (CL) — performed in the scanning or transmission electron microscopes — has seen a resurgence in interest due to its unique ability to investigate the optical properties of important twenty-first century materials and devices from the macro- to nano-scale whilst also providing direct correlation with structure and composition. 

From characterization of optical properties far below the diffraction limit in nanophotonics and quantum optics, through improvements in efficiency and quality control of optoelectronic and photovoltaic devices to quantitative microanalysis in earth and planetary sciences cathodoluminescence has played a critical role in advancing our understanding of basic science and improvement in performance of many technologically important devices.  Facilitating the rapid advancements in scientific discovery has been the revolution in CL detection technologies with the latest generation of detection systems providing the most complete understanding of optical emissions to date with unprecedented sensitivities and data quality.

This webinar will serve as an introduction to the CL technique and key application challenges addressed by CL highlighting some of the latest research from the world of nanophotonics, micro-LED device development and microanalysis.  Over the next 12 months, a series of webinars will be held where we dive into specific applications in greater detail highlighting how the latest detectors enable understanding that was never possible previously.

Whether you are new to CL, or think you already know what CL can do for you, join us to have your eyes opened to the CL revolution.
