Abstract

The isotopic composition of a large number of Os-samples from terrestrial platinum ores and from iron meteorites has been investigated by mass-spectrometry. The observed isotope-ratios Os{sup 187}:Os{sup 186} in Os/Ir-ores and in Os-samples, extracted quantitatively from iron meteorites, vary in limit from 0.88 to 1.41. These variations may be explained by the production of radiogenic Os following the decay of Re{sup 187}, a natural {beta}-emitter with the lowest known {beta}-energy. Neutron activation analysis proves that Re and Os are common trace elements in iron meteorites. As dating of these bodies by conventional methods suffers from enormous difficulties, the application of the Re/Os method has been studied. From our experiments a primordial Os{sup 187}:Os{sup 186} ratio is assumed and 'minimum ages' are discussed. They differ widely and are found presumably in the range from 3.7 to 5.6x10{sup 9} yr.

Ces variations peuvent etre expliquees par la production d'osmium radiogenicjue resultant de la desintegration du rhenium-187, emetteur naturel de rayonnements beta connu comme ayant la plus faible energie beta. L'analyse par activation des neutrons montre que le rhenium et l'osmium se trouvent communement a l'etat de traces dans les holosideres. Comme il est extremement difficile d'evaluer l'age de ces corps en recourant aux methodes classiques, les auteurs du memoire ont examine la possibilite d'utiliser le rapport Re/Os. Apres avoir assume de leurs experiences le rapport osmium-187/osmium-186, ils examinent la question des . Ceux-ci different sensiblement et semblent etre de l'ordre de 3,7 a 5,6 {center_dot} 10{sup 9} ans. (author) [Spanish] Los autores han investigado por espectrometria de masas la composicion isotopica de gran numero de muestras de osmio procedentes de minerales terrestres de platino y de meteorites de hierro. Las razones isotopicas {sup 187}Os : {sup 186}Os observadas en los minerales de Os/Ir y en las muestras de Os, extraidas cuantitativamente de meteoritos de hierro, varian entre 0,88 y 1,41. Estas variaciones pueden explicarse por la formacion de Os radiogenico a consecuencia de la desintegracion del {sup 187}Re, que es el emisor natural {beta} que posee la energia {beta} mas baja conocida. Los analisis por activacion neutronica demuestran que en los meteoritos de hierro se suelen encontrar vestigios do Re y Os. Como la determinacion de la edad de estos cuerpos con ayuda de los metodos clasicos tropieza con enormes dificultades, los autores han estudiado la posibilidad de aplicar un metodo basado en la evaluacion de la razon Re/Os. Despues de haber deducido experimentalmente una razon basica {sup 187}Os : {sup 186}Os, los autores examinan la cuestion de las edades minimas. Estas varian sensiblemente y estan al parecer comprendidas entre 3,7 y 5,6 x 10{sup 9} anos.
