Segregation and Diffusion of Elements in Yttrium Aluminium Garnet (YAG) Using NanoSIMS

The CAMECA NanoSIMS is a unique ion microprobe optimizing SIMS analysis performance at high lateral resolution. It is based on a coaxial optical design of the ion gun and the Secondary ion extraction, and on an original magnetic sector mass analyzer with multicollection.

Using NanoSIMS to Understand Segregation and Diffusion of Elements in Polycrystalline Materials

The NanoSIMS is used here to contribute to the understanding of the segregation and diffusion of elements in polycrystalline materials.

Unique Capabilities Offered by NanoSIMS

The NanoSIMS offers unique capabilities of combining high lateral resolution and benchmark sensitivity for material characterization. It is the only instrument capable of imaging trace elements or isotopic enrichment down to 50nm resolution. Other technologies are limited in sensitivity (TEMS-EELS, EDS, Auger, TOF-SIMS,...) or lateral resolution (conventional SIMS, laser-ICPMS, SEM-EDS, Raman, XPS).
