Figure 3

Relationships between the positions of the olivine doublet peaks, DB1 and DB2 in the three Itokawa particles. A hatched area shows the range of forsterite mol% in olivine in the three samples that were obtained by an electron microprobe analyzer. The dotted curves show contours of different Fo mol%, and a black solid curve is the best fit curve between the positions of DB1 and DB2 by Kuebler et al. (2006).
