SIMS Student Workshop 2012

           The fifth 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.
