英文摘要: Abstract(#br)Recent research has demonstrated the importance of understanding alpha radiation damage in zircon in order to effectively interpret the thermochronologic significance of (U-Th)/He dates and to appropriately select laser ablation U/Pb reference standards. Direct measurements of alpha radiation damage in zircon are most easily done by using Raman spectral response as a proxy. Current Raman microscopes provide the opportunity to quantify not just a crystal's bulk radiation damage, but to map intracrystalline variations in radiation damage related to radionuclide zoning. Here we illustrate the procedure through a detailed study of zoned Proterozoic zircon crystals from the Adirondack Mountains of New York state. Although previous Raman studies have focused on the response of the...
