UCLA Ion Microprobe Student Workshop was held September 17-21 2012 with generous support
from the NSF Instrumentation and Facilities program. Twenty students
from nearly as many universities attended the workshop.
During the week-long workshop, lectures were held on the fundamentals of SIMS and SIMS' roles in geology and
geochemistry with hands-on demonstrations of the UCLA ims 1270 ion
microprobe and its auxiliary facilities and instrumentation by the
Facility's researchers and faculty. We also extend our thanks to Ian
Hutcheon (Lawrence Livermore National Lab) for his exciting guest lecture on
NanoSIMS applications in nuclear forensics.
We would like to thank the participants for the stimulating, quizzical discussions and for making it such a memorable week. We also thank NSF
for their support that made this a successful workshop.
