Ion Beam Analysis
Applied ion beam analysis makes use of ion beams for materials, structural and radionuclide analysis. Experimental and theoretical studies of interactions of ions with solids including energy-loss, straggling, and charge-state distributions are part of our research. We further develop and improve technology for high-resolution ion beam analysis in terms of energy resolution as well as in terms of lateral resolution.
We closely collaborate with other divisions within our institute and contribute to the work of many external groups at universities, other research centres, industrial research institutes and companies. Most of our applied research topics are interdisciplinary.
Current research topics
- Ion beam analysis with highest lateral resolution / Ion beam analysis within a Helium ion microscope
- In-situ ion beam analysis and ion beam analysis under enviromental conditions
- Combining differnt thechniques of ion beam analysis in unique experiments
- Accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS)
