The Effect of Simultaneous Temperature, Pressure and Stress on the Experimental Annealing of Spontaneous Fission Tracks in Apatite: A Brief Overview
Tracks made in minerals by the electronic stopping of uranium fission fragments provide a modern geological dating tool, and are believed also to yield specific information on the low-temperature thermal history of rocks. Experimental work showing that the damaged crystal lattice along a fission track recovers primarily as a function of temperature ignored the fact that the basic theory of atomic diffusion requires an exponential decrease in the intrinsic diffusion coefficient with increasing...[Show more]
