Title: Friction-Induced Changes in the Surface Structure of Basalt and Granite

Abstract

Friction-induced changes in the structure of the surface layer of basalt and granite samples extracted from a well in the triggered seismicity zone in the Koyna–Warna region, India, have been studied by infrared, Raman, and photoluminescence spectroscopy. It has been found that friction leads to a partial degradation of quartz, albite, and clinopyroxenes crystals. Instead of these crystals, a thin layer of a mineral with a low coefficient of friction—kaolinite—is formed on the surface.
