Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A series of new instruments have been developed for the study of ion emission from hot inorganic deposits, these being; a tube ion source, an ion source imaging instrument, and an ion/ neutral mass spectrometer. Techniques have been developed for applying these instruments to the development of new ion emitters as well as in studying the properties of previously developed emitters. This line of study has led to a new type of anion emitter that has found use as the primary gun for the static SIMS analysis of insulators. Applications of the new primary anion gun to the measurement of environmental contaminants are discussed.
