  • Published 2007


Experimental conditions for major, minor, and trace element analysis of olivine and lowCa pyroxene are described and analytical accuracy tested using suites of natural samples spanning a wide range of Mg/Fe. Special attention was given to sample cleanliness to avoid contamination, instrumental vacuum to eliminate hydrides in the secondary ion spectrum, and… (More)
