Dynamic Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry offers 2D and 3D imaging capabilities at sub-micron lateral resolution and delivers high sensitivity elemental and isotopic measurements with ppm level detection limits for all species (H-U).

Co-edited with Wiley, this tutorial guide explores the major components of a typical dynamic SIMS instrument, outlines its advantages over alternative surface analytical techniques, and discusses future directions that will allow the technique to be applied to an even wider range of samples. Four case Four case studies provide examples of how SIMS is used in areas ranging from life sciences to materials and cosmochemistry.

This short guide is an invaluable resource for students, scientist and engineers, in both academia and industry.
