UCLA Ion Microprobe
Student Workshop was held February 16-19 2010 with generous support
from the NSF Instrumentation and Facilities program. About two dozen
students from nearly as many universities attended the workshop.
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
Victoria Orphan (Caltech) for her guest lecture on SIMS applications in
All participants are thanked for a stimulating week, and we thank NSF
for their support that made this a successful workshop.
