Most cathodoluminescence analyses of minerals are performed in relatively simple, but valuable (despite their limited spatial resolution), optical CL microscopes described in Section 5.4 (Hagni, 1987). An x-ray detector attachment developed by Marshall et al. (1987) for the Luminoscope (Nuclide), in addition to the CL capability, provides a powerful characterization technique for studies of minerals. The symposium “Cathodoluminescence Microscopy Applications in Process Mineralogy” (Hagni, 1987), including a bibliography by Barker (1987) with several hundred references, and earlier reviews of the CL of minerals (Remond, 1977; Nickel, 1978; Hagni, 1985) and a book by Marshall (1988) indicate that optical CL microscopy of minerals has become a significant field.
