Investigation of surface properties of lunar regolith - Part IV

Title variants
Languages of publication
We investigated three lunar regolith powder samples from the Apollo missions. Apollo 11 and Apollo 12 samples come from lunar maria and Apollo 16 sample from a highland region. In the present paper we summarise in brief results of measurements using photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), micro-Raman spectroscopy (RM), x-ray diffraction (XRD), x-ray fluorescence spectroscopy (XRF), temperature programmed reduction and oxidation (TPRO), thermogravimetry (TG), differential thermal analysis (DTA) and nitrogen adsorption. Parts of samples are visualised by means of scanning electron microscopy (SEM/EDX) and atomic force microscopy (AFM).
