Plasma Chemistry: Application to Noble Gas Mass Spectrometry
Physics and Astronomy
Recent advances in plasma chemical techniques in the area of soil removal and reversal of terrestrial oxidation effects in archaeological artifacts and meteorites shows promise for further application in meteoritics and geochemistry. We present here two possible application of low-temperature oxygen plasma treatment which may be useful in the area of mass spectrometry for the removal of noble gases from important selected geochemical samples of interest.
Presented at the 49th Annual Meeting of the Meteoritical Society.
