Abstract: To obtain information on the chemical and physical conditions of circumstellar dust and its regions of formation, we have investigated the behavior of the far-infrared absorption spectra of olivines with chemical compositions close to the Mg-end member by use of newly synthesized polycrystalline samples. In the future, we intend to put some constraints on the range of chemical composition and circumstellar dust temperature by comparison of observational results with laboratory spectroscopic data.
