Distribution of Germanium and Other Elements in Samples of the Chelyabinsk Meteorite, Determined via Scanning Synchrotron Radiation X-ray Fluorescence Microanalysis

Abstract

Two samples of the Chelyabinsk meteorite are examined via scanning synchrotron radiation X-ray fluorescence microanalysis. The spatial distribution of several chemical elements is studied, and the patterns of localization are obtained for germanium and copper. The most pronounced correlations between elements are investigated: the relationship between the germanium and copper localization and specific minerals.
