2014 SIMS Student WORKSHOP (Feb 17-21) We thank all participants for the stimulating discussions and for making it such a memorable experience. Check for the workshop mementos here.

The UCLA SIMS (a CAMECA ims-1270) is supported by the NSF Instrumentation and Facilities Program. This page describes some of the capabilities of our facility and some of the users that have visited and used it.
