CALDERON, T. Ionoluminescence and minerals: the state of the art. Rev. mex. fis. [online]. 2008, vol.54, suppl.2, pp.21-28. ISSN 0035-001X.

Until now, Ionoluminescence (IL) has been mainly exploited to detect impurities or defects inside materials, most of which, synthetic. This paper gives a summary on new applications of IL, going one step further by applying the technique to minerals, simulants and synthetic analogues. A new IL model is discussed.

Keywords : Ionoluminescence; mineral; defects; impurities; mechanism.
