Data from: Detecting sub-micron space weathering effects in lunar grains with synchrotron infrared nanospectroscopy

Kainen Utt, Ryan Ogliore, Hans Bechtel, Jeffrey Gillis-Davis & Brad Jolliff
Space weathering processes induce changes to the physical, chemical, and optical properties of space-exposed soil grains. For the Moon, space weathering causes reddening, darkening, and diminished contrast in reflectance spectra over visible and near-infrared wavelengths. The physical and chemical changes responsible for these optical effects occur on scales below the diffraction limit of traditional far-field spectroscopic techniques. Recently developed super-resolution spectroscopic techniques provide an opportunity to understand better the optical effects of space weathering on...
