Nature of Paramagnetic Defects in α-Quartz: Progresses in the First Decade of the 21st Century (pp. 65-104) $100.00
Authors:  (Rudolf I. Mashkovtsev, Yuanming Pan, V.S. Sobolev Institute of Geology and Mineralogy SB RAS, Novosibirsk, Russia, and others)
Impurities and other defects in -quartz not only record genetic information of this
common mineral but also exert profound (positive or negative) effects on the
technological applications of this important material. Also, fundamental defects in -
quartz often serve as the testing cases for understanding analogous defects in other silicabased
materials. Following the last comprehensive review by Weil (2000), this
contribution summarizes new progresses on the nature of paramagnetic impurities and
other defects in -quartz, made in the first decade of this century. In particular, new data
on impurities stem from not only the development of in situ microbeam techniques for
compositional analyses but also the application of state-of-the-art spectroscopic methods
[high-frequency electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR), pulsed electron nuclear double
resonance (ENDOR) and electron spin echo envelope modulation (ESEEM), and
synchrotron X-ray absorption spectroscopy] and first-principles theoretical calculations
for structural investigations. Other significant progresses include the discovery and
quantitative characterization of a large number of new paramagnetic defects related to
vacancies at the oxygen and silicon sites.
