WiscSIMS, the Wisconsin Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometer Laboratory, explores new applications of in situ analysis to stable isotope geochemistry. Research in many disciplines can benefit by using the IMS-1280 ion microprobe, a CAMECA large radius magnetic sector SIMS. The dramatic reductions of sample size and analysis spot sizes from 1 to 10 micrometers offer many exciting, potentially revolutionary, research opportunities.
