Abstract

This chapter describes samples and analytical techniques used for studying the mineralogy and the shock-induced effects in the Yanzhuang meteorite. These techniques are optical microscopy (OM), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) with energy-dispersive X-ray analysis (EDXA), electron probe microanalysis (EPMA), Raman microprobe analysis (RMA), X-ray micro-diffraction analysis (XRMD), transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM), instrumental neutron activation analysis (INAA), proton-induced X-ray emission analysis (PIXE), and laser ablation inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (LA-ICP-MS).
