MiniCL System

Cathodoluminescence imaging compatible with all scanning electron microscopes or microprobes.

Advantages Research Spotlight Media Library Publications Resources Back to top

Simple to use cathodoluminescence imaging system for use in scanning electron microscopes (SEM) and electron probe microanalyzers (EPMA). The MiniCL™ system is sensitive to luminescence from most geological specimens, and the detector is positioned close to the specimen boosting detection efficiency.  

  • Sensitive to ultraviolet, visible and near infrared wavelengths enabling panchromatic cathodoluminescence imaging of a wide range of minerals, ceramics, and LED materials
  • Cathodoluminescence images at a spatial resolution higher than bench-top flood gun systems
  • Use at all SEM magnifications to reveal macro- and micro-texture in sedimentary rocks including:  sediment source, degree of compaction, diagenetic history, differentiation of authigenic and detrital minerals, cementation history, and provenance
  • Convenient use with other SEM detectors including:  secondary and backscattered electron detectors and energy or wavelength dispersive X-ray detectors
