Performance of a Borehole X-Ray Fluorescence Spectrometer for Planetary Exploration

Abstract

We have designed and constructed a borehole X-ray fluorescence spectrometer (XRFS) as part of the Mars Subsurface Access program (http://marstech.jpl.nasa.gov/content/detail.cfm?Sect=MTP&Cat=base&subCat=SSA&subSubCat=&TaskID=2256). It can be used to determine the composition of the Mars regolith at various depths by insertion into a pre-drilled borehole… (More)
