Abstract

Cathodoluminescence (CL) microanalysis (spectroscopy and microscopy) in an electron microscope enables both pre-existing and irradiation induced local variations in the bulk and surface defect structure of wide band gap materials to be characterized with high spatial (lateral and depth) resolution and sensitivity. CL microanalytical techniques allow the in situ monitoring of electron irradiation induced damage, the post irradiation assessment of damage induced by other energetic radiation, and the investigation of irradiation induced electromigration of mobile charged defect species. Electron irradiated silicon dioxide polymorphs and MeV H+ ion implanted Type Ila diamond have been investigated using CL microanalytical techniques.
