1 In-situ K-Ar dating using LIBS in the VUV range Shingo Kameda1, Yuichiro Cho2,Yasuhito Sekine2, Seiji Sugita21 Rikkyo University, 2 The University of Tokyo
2 K–Ar dating Rock: Ar degassing occurs before solidified 40CaCaCaβ ~90%40K40K/K ~10-440ArHalf-life~1.8 ByEC ~10%Rock:Ar degassing occurs before solidifiedThe dominant source of 40Ar is 40K decay.Ca is abundant Difficulty to estimate the amount of 40K originated Ca.
3 K–Ar datingIce:K has a high solubility in waterAr degassing also occurs before frozen.The dominant source of 40Ar in ice should be also 40K decay.・Possibility of K-Ar dating on Europa [Swindle et al., 2005]Europa’s surface: tens of My.Ganymede’s surface: hundreds of My.

15 Another activity on LIBS SELENE-2 (Lunar Rover, ‘Pre’-Project) ChemCam-like LIBS is too big (9-11kg) to install on the gimbal on the mast unit of the SELENE-2 rover.Install LIB-S2 on the body to reduce the total mass. (Fiber becomes unnecessary.)3.5 kgCloser to the ground Distance range can be reduced.
