Abstract : Cathodoluminescence (CL) in a scanning electron microscope (SEM) is used in the present work for investigating various growth sectors found in synthetic quartz crystals. This is a relatively simple, rapid and non-destructive method which gives a very high resolution. Our results using CL correlate well with those obtained by other methods, e.g. x-ray topography and light scattering tomography. The advantages of CL technique over other methods are described in detail and discussed.
