Probing cosmochemistry conundrums with a CAMECA SIMS at the University of Hawai‘i

Friday, June 19, 2020

What went on in the early Solar System?

Can we ever know how and when our Sun and planets formed, and from what?
Gary Huss and his colleagues are determined to find out.
A research professor and director of the W. M. Keck Cosmochemistry Laboratory in the Hawai‘i Institute of Geophysics and Planetology (HIGP) at the University of Hawai‘i, Dr. Huss facilitates a wide range of cosmochemical tasks and other projects at the lab, working with scientists worldwide.

To conduct its investigation, the facility relies on its chief tool, a CAMECA Large Geometry SIMS.

Read the full success story and learn how the CAMECA SIMS was used in recent studies of calcium aluminium-rich inclusions in the Kaba & Allende meteorites.
