Nature Reviews Publication

Togther with fellow SIMS experts from around the world we have pulsihed a new Primer ‘Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry‘ in Nature Reviews Methods. The manuscript describes the operating principles of SIMS and outlines how the instrument geometry and operational parameters enable different modes of operation and information to be obtained. Applications, including materials science, surface science, electronic devices, geosciences and life sciences, are explored, finishing with an outlook for the technique.

The manuscript is currently only availble to download on journal subscription but will be Open Acess in 6 months.  In the meantime you can view the full article here.
