Mass Spectrometer

The Time of Flight Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometer (TOF SIMS) at the Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory (EMSL) is an ultrahigh vacuum surface analytical system. Using this resource, scientists examine surface structure, composition, and chemical state by means of secondary ion detection during ion sputtering.
