  author={John A. Weil},
A review (126 references) is presented of progress made, primarily in the decade 1982–1992, in the field of electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopy of ‘point’ defects occurring in crystalline silicon dioxide (α-quartz). 
EPR on Radiation-Induced Defects in SiO2
Continuous-wave electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectroscopy has been the technique of choice for the studies of radiation-induced defects in silica (SiO2) for 60 years, and has recently been

A short review of Al-related point deflects and their radiation effects is presented. These defects exhibit spectroscopic signals which are monitored by a variety of experimental techniques. This
Luminescence of quartz under the action of a shock wave
Upon fracture of quartz under the action of a shock wave caused by an electric explosion, a plasma jet is formed. An analysis of the luminescence spectra shows that the jet consists of atoms and
Defect structure and luminescence behaviour of agate – results of electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) and cathodoluminescence (CL) studies
Abstract Samples of agate and quartz incrustations from different parent volcanic rocks of certain world-wide localities were investigated by EPR, CL and trace element analysis. In all agate samples
Atom positions from hyperfine data for germanium centers in α‐quartz
Germanium 3+ occurs in α‐quartz substitutionally for silicon 4+, either as complex anions [GeO4]− or these anions charge‐compensated with interstitial alkali cations, i.e. as two primary types of
An EPR study of native radiation-induced paramagnetic defects in sudoite (di–trioctahedral Al–Mg chlorite) from the alteration halo related to unconformity-type uranium deposits
Natural radiation-induced defects were identified in specimens of sudoite (Al–Mg di-trioctahedral chlorite) related to unconformity-type uranium deposits at the base of the Athabasca Group
Ab initio studies on water related species in quartz and their role in weakening under stress
Abstract Ab initio calculations on the modes of incorporation of water in quartz suggest that, apart from the incidental inclusion of molecular water as fluid inclusions, the most prevalent mode of
Application of the ESR method in geological correlation problems
The electron spin resonance data on vacancies and impurity defects in rock-forming quartz were used in the tasks of geological correlation of the polymetamorphic Precambrian strata of a drilling area
Evidence of native radiation-induced paramagnetic defects in natural illites from unconformity-type uranium deposits
This study presents the first unequivocal identification of natural radiation-induced defects in illites. Middle Proterozoic illites related to unconformity-type uranium deposits of Canada and
Origin, spectral characteristics and practical applications of the cathodoluminescence (CL) of quartz – a review
Summary Investigations of natural and synthetic quartz specimens by cathodoluminescence (CL) microscopy and spectroscopy, electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) and trace-element analysis showed that


Free Induction of E1'‐Centres in Crystalline Quartz
The results of an experimental investigation of the free induction of E-centres in crystalline quartz are presented. The EPR technique based on the pulsed change of the polarizing magnetic field is

A comprehensive review (ca. 230 references) is presented of the present (1983) state of knowledge of paramagnetic defects in crystalline quartz, as derived from electron paramagnetic resonance
Temperature dependence of the quadruple interaction and the diffusion of muonium atoms in α-quartz
The results of an experimental investigation of the quadrupole interaction of muonium atom in-quartz in the temperature region 75–300 K are presented. It is show that the observed temperature
