Project Details


Elemental Analysis of Solar Wind and Technical Enabling of Genesis Objectives Dr. Amy Jurewicz Arizona State University Statement of Work Work with Genesis PI and members of Genesis science team to further the science goals of the Genesis Discovery Mission by performing analyses of materials containing implanted solar wind, and supporting and facilitating analyses in other laboratories around the world: Measure Genesis solar wind and investigate, develop and distribute technology that enables Genesis solar-wind analysis, including analytical standard fabrication and validation, collector-material cleaning studies, analytical technique development such as back-side depth profiling and internal standardization Support material allocation by the Genesis Curatorial Facility at Johnson Space Center (JSC) for special projects Perform secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS) analysis, using instruments at Caltech, at ASU, and elsewhere as required. Support ranges from sample prep through to data processing Assume responsibility for implants simulating solar wind, including subdividing implanted samples for distribution to analysis PI laboratories Work with any or all analysis PIs to clean samples, especially acid cleaning using trace-element grade chemicals Supervise Genesis flight spare and control samples and provide control sample requests to other Genesis PI's as required
