More important, the originality of the structure, pattern, contour and texture of the irradiated crater depth will be sustaining from any physical and chemical distortion before proceed to the sample analysis.
2], but conversely removed at the centre of the crater depth obtained at 260-300 J/[cm.
Moreover, the study from Brygo et al revealed the RR below than 100 Hz has no significant effects in removal paint on a crater depth, [10].
The same trend for craters on Titan was calculated using estimates of the crater depth from images made by Cassini's radar instrument.
To negate any effects on the crater depth measurements from variations in the polished polymer surface, marks were made in the unexposed polymer surface to ensure the 2-D surface profiles were made across the same unexposed and exposed surfaces during each weekly surface measurement.
To convert each measured surface profile into a single data point, the average crater depth was calculated over the middle 3 mm (0.
As seen in Figure 3, the average crater depth versus exposure time plots for PBT are linear regardless of the irradiance level or length of exposure and are dependent only on the level of irradiance (indicating law of reciprocity obeyed).
The crater depth at which the rate changes was inversely proportional to the irradiance level, e.
However, as impact angle decreases, so does crater depth (Gault and Wedekind 1978; Pierazzo and Melosh 2000).
The tool wear data showed different trends, the crater depth increased as the cutting surface speed increased.
