Quartz is one of the minerals useful for electron spin resonance ESR dating. This center has a unique feature; its intensity increases on heating. An electronic process to explain this increase was found to be controlled not only by the number of oxygen vacancies, which are the precursors, but also by the number of Al hole centers, which depend on the previous radiation dose and on the Al concentration. The correlation between the numbers of the oxygen vacancies in quartz and the ages of the host granite made it possible to distinguish the quartz of a sedimentary reservoir from another with different age of crystallization Toyoda and Naruse, Quartz fractions extracted from leoss and atmospheric deposition in Japan and from sediments in Japan sea were analyzed by ESR.

Grant-in-Aid for Challenging Exploratory Research. The number of fission tracks FT is counted under an optical microscope after etching. However, as FT density per unit area rises, it becomes difficult to count the number of tracks because tracks overlap one another and are unable to be readily distinguished. The atomic force microscope AFM has a potential to observe fission tracks with high density after a short time etching.
This research developed sample preparation techniques e. The results were satisfactory, though the sample as old as 1 Ga is the oldest limit to be dated because the weak etching prevents extraction of FT from other structures. High resolution of AFM enables observation of possible alpha recoil tracks in zircon. All All Journal Article Presentation. Back to previous page.

Our aim is to develop a geological dating method based on counting etched recoil tracks in mica. The track production rate is calculated from the uranium and thorium concentrations of the mica. The number of tracks is found by etching the mica surface in hydrofluoric acid and counting the etch pits with a high-contrast Nomarski optical microscope.

The Institute of Physical and Chemical Research. During the past few years, considerable attention has been given to the possibility of dating by fission tracks and alpha-particle recoil tracks. In this paper, it was described the principle and application for Quaternary period. Ages of a few obsidians and old man made glasses were measured by the fission track method. The volcanic glass which was extracted from the deep sea core V , was determined of its age and it was compared with the paleomagnetic result.
According to the experimental result of this method, the difficulty and the usefulness wcre discussed. Already have an account? Login in here. The Quaternary Research Daiyonki-Kenkyu. Journal home Journal issue About the journal.
Development of radiation damage dating by AFM
14 DATE OF REPORT (Year, Month, Day) eous fission fragments, alpha particles, and recoil nuclei provides the means of radon escape.
Up until now, thermal events have been considered as the only source of energy for the recovery of radiation-damage. Diffusion kinetics for noble gas thermochronometry is commonly assumed to be solely a function of temperature, and this is the basis for extrapolating the physical mechanisms observed in laboratory experiments to the temperature and time regimes of natural systems 1.
However, recent new models have demonstrated that alpha-recoil damage, i. This effect can be reversed by thermal annealing of the radiation damage 2 , 3. In addition, the recovery of fission tracks, another type of radiation damage caused by spontaneous fission of U, is generally considered as diffusion-controlled process 8 , 9 , 10 , an ultimate thermal effect. However, under certain radiation conditions, thermally induced diffusion is less significant than radiation-enhanced diffusion 11 , 12 as more vacancies and interstitials are produced by interactions of energetic ions than those that are thermally activated 13 , This study addresses the recovery of alpha-recoil damage in apatite by the irradiation of alpha-particles, another source of energy that can drive the recovery process.
Notice “Alpha-recoil track dating: problems and prospects”
As aqueous dissolution of minerals can potentially dilute such disequilibrium by releasing large amounts of U, we tentatively evaluate the ability of these models to quantitatively account for the disequilibrium within different scenarios of aqueous corrosion. We show that three of the models ejection of recoil nuclei and derived models require very low and unlikely dissolution rates while the last one change in valence state , which does not depend on the dissolution rates, seems plausible although it has not been particularly emphasized in recent works.

Recoil proton, alpha particle, and heavy ion impacts on microdosimetry and RBE of fast neutrons : analysis of kerma spectra calculated by Monte Carlo simulation. Checking for direct PDF access through Ovid. Abstract Fast neutrons FN have a higher radio-biological effectiveness RBE compared with photons, however the mechanism of this increase remains a controversial issue.
RBE variations are seen among various FN facilities and at the same facility when different tissue depths or thicknesses of hardening filters are used. These variations lead to uncertainties in dose reporting as well as in the comparisons of clinical results. Besides radiobiology and microdosimetry, another powerful method for the characterization of FN beams is the calculation of total proton and heavy ion kerma spectra.
The slow energy protons are produced by neutrons having an energy between 10 keV and 10 MeV, while the alpha particles are produced by neutrons having an energy between 10 keV and 15 MeV. Ces variations apportent une incertitude dans la prescription de la dose, et dans les comparaisons d’essais cliniques.
