Description
Raman spectra of pellets 1 and 2 of the Murchison meteorite, with different irradiation spots on the surface. Raman micro-spectroscopy was performed at the SMIS beamline at SOLEIL using a DXR Raman micro-spectrometer from Thermo Fisher with a 532 nm exciting laser radiation, and a power on the sample lower than 0.3 mW, producing power densities lower than 300 $W/mm^2$.
Variable(s)
irradiation dose
Variable comments
We irradiated two pellets of Murchison using the SIDONIE isotope separator in CSNSM, Orsay, using $He^+$ and $Ar^+$ ions at 40 keV. Sample were mounted vertically and ion irradiation was performed at normal incidence. We produced four separate irradiation spots (4 mm in diameter each) on each pellet, using different fluences: $5~10^{14}, 2~10^{15}, 1~10^{16}, 3~10^{16}$ for $He^+$ ions.$cm^{-2}$, and $1~10^{14}, 5~10^{14}, 2~10^{15}, 6~10^{15}$ for $Ar^+$ ions.$cm^{-2}$. Earlier irradiated spots were masked to protect them from contamination of sputter deposits from the subsequent irradiation steps. A central area (diameter 2 mm) of each pellet remained non-irradiated.
