Minerals, Organics, and Water in 3D view — 11 am–5 pm, July 7 (Sun), 2019
Recent development of analytical techniques brought us new insights into three-dimensional structures of extraterrestrial materials in multiscale from centimeters to sub-nanometer.
Tomographic analysis is a non-destructive technique that can reveal 3D distributions of minerals, organic matter, fluid inclusions in limited and scientifically valuable samples such as primitive meteorites, cometary dust, and past/future return samples. Microscale inhomogeneities of asteroidal and cometary materials are uncovered by 3D structural analysis with multi-wavelength light and ions.
In this workshop, we discuss destructive/non-destructive 3D analysis and frontiers of 3D analytical techniques applicable to extraterrestrial materials and future return samples by Hayabusa2 and OSIRIS-REx.
The world is 3D!
