Abstract:AbstractThe employment of soft X-rays and swift ions has been used in laboratory to simulate the physicochemical processing of astrophysical ice analogs by energetic photons and cosmic rays. This processing includes excitation, ionization and molecular dissociation, desorption, as well as triggers the formation of new compounds. Here we present some results from experiments employing infrared spectroscopy in two different laboratories: LNLS/CNPEM in Campinas/Brazil and GANIL/CIRIL/CIMAP in Caen/France. Among t… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
