We are pleased to congratulate our Hyperion II users from UCLA's NSF National Ion Microprobe Facility and from Université de Pau et des Pays de l'Adour, both of whom have published their work showing SIMS performance improvements provided by the Hyperion II ion source.
New Publications Featuring Hyperion II
We are pleased to congratulate our Hyperion II users who have had their work published recently.
Researchers at UCLA’s NSF National Ion Microprobe Facility have published their results showing up to an order of magnitude increase in 16O- current density, resulting from the installation of Hyperion II, in place of the duoplasmatron. The mission for this multi-user facility is to provide a larger community of researchers with access to instrumentation to help them gain understanding of critical questions in earth and planetary science. Their CAMECA ims1290 equipped with the radio-frequency Hyperion-II plasma ion source is instrumental in providing in situ microscope isotopic analyses of geologic materials.

In another publication, researchers at Université de Pau et des Pays de l’Adour present the performance improvements provided by the Hyperion II source on their Camera NanoSIMS50L, which will be advantageous for the study of macro elements and trace metals present in the cells of biological specimens.
