Title Super-SIMS in the Ion Beam Center
Description In the search for raw materials and rare earths, researchers use so-called scout elements such as lead and bismuth. Even in the smallest concentrations they provide clues to raw material deposits. Scientists at the Helmholtz Institute Freiberg for Resource Technology at HZDR operate a secondary ion mass spectrometer (SIMS, right at the back of the picture) to investigate the content of ores - a crucial prerequisite for making the search for and processing of raw materials efficient and environmentally friendly. To achieve even more precise analysis, the SIMS is coupled with a six-megavolt accelerator (left in the picture).
