This led to the discovery that neutrino annihilation is capable of targeting 4s electrons in hcp-Fe, a phase transition in iron providing a natural thermoregulation mechanism as the 4s electrons transfer to the 3d subshell, assuring that the thermal flux through a subglacial ocean is essentially independent of planetary mass for relatively dense, rocky planets [3,10].

To calculate the intensity of x-ray emission in electron beam microanalysis requires a knowledge of the energy distribution of the electrons in the solid, the energy variation of the ionization cross section of the relevant subshell, the fraction of ionizations events producing x rays of interest and the absorption coefficient of the x rays on the path to the detector.
