Assessment of crystallographic orientation effects on secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS) analysis of cassiterite
Crystallographic orientation effects on ion microprobe analyses for U-Pb and O-isotopes have been reported for a number of oxide minerals, including rutile (TiO₂) and baddeleyite (ZrO₂). Here we evaluate the effects of crystal orientation on U-Pb and O-isotopic data measured by ion microprobe on cassiterite (SnO₂), which is isostructural with rutile. The crystallographic orientations of mounted and polished grains of cassiterite were determined by electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD). Those...[Show more]
