The nanoSIMS at EMSL is a new-generation ion microprobe that extends secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS) analysis to extremely small areas or volumes while maintaining extremely high sensitivity at high mass resolution. It enables extremely high resolution analysis of the isotopic composition of organic and inorganic samples with applications in geology, biology, particulates and materials sciences and will allow researchers to perform high spatial resolution imaging of elements, isotopes, and soft materials at the nanoscale. Available May 2012, EMSL is the first user facility in the world to make a nanoSIMS capability accessible to users. EMSL is a Department of Energy national scientific user facility located at PNNL.
