Contents Notes
Theoretical Background -- Experimental Techniques -- Luminescent Minerals -- Interpretation of Luminescence Centers -- Applications of Laser-Induced Time-Resolved Spectroscopic Techniques -- Minerals Prospecting -- Minerals Radiometric Sorting -- Identification of Minerals -- Waste Storage Geomaterials -- Luminescent Bio-Minerals -- Conclusion. Luminescence Spectroscopy of Minerals and Materials presents an overview of the general concepts in luminescence spectroscopy as well as experimental methods and their interpretation. Special emphasis is laid on the fluorescence lifetime and the determination of time-resolved spectra. This method enables the exposure of new luminescence in minerals previously hidden by more intensive centers. Specialists in the fields of solid state physics, chemistry and spectroscopy will find a wealth of new information in this unique book.
