Measurement of the O18 to O16 isotope ratio for characterizing oxide surface layers on LDEF samplesCalculations indicate that measurement of the O-16 to O-18 isotope ratio in oxide layers formed on the surfaces of the Long Duration Exposure Facility (LDEF) samples would provide a powerful tool for distinguishing between layers formed at high altitudes and layers formed at low altitudes, as for example during the retrieval of a satellite. In principle, this ratio may be used to date the formation of the oxide layers.
