UCLA SIMS Student
UCLA Ion Microprobe
Student Workshop was held November 12-16 2007 with generous support
from the NSF Instrumentation and Facilities program. Over 20 graduate
students from as many universities attended the workshop. The
workshop comprised lectures on the role of SIMS in geology and
geochemistry with hands-on demonstrations of the UCLA ims 1270 ion
microprobe and its auxilliary facilities and instrumentation by the
Facility's researchers and faculty. We are also very grateful to John
Eiler who faced L.A. traffic to drive across town to present a guest
lecture on fundamentals and applications of Caltech's new NanoSIMS.
All participants are thanked for a stimulating week, and we thank NSF
for their support that made this a successful workshop.
