SAXS study of ion tracks in San Carlos olivine and Durango apatite

Afra, Boshra; Rodriguez, Matias; Lang, M; Ewing, R. C.; Kirby, N; Trautmann, C.; Kluth, Patrick


Ion tracks were generated in crystalline San Carlos olivine (Mg,Fe) 2SiO 4 and Durango apatite Ca 10(PO 4) 6F 2 using different heavy ions ( 58Ni, 101Ru, 129Xe, 197Au, and 238U) with energies ranging between 185 MeV and 2.6 GeV. The tracks and their annealing behavior were studied by means of synchrotron based small angle X-ray scattering in combination with in situ annealing. Track radii vary as a function of electronic energy loss but are very similar in both minerals. Furthermore, the...[Show more]
