70 kV Focused Gas Cluster Ion Beam System

The GCIB SM is a 70 kV sub-micron gas cluster ion beam designed for high-resolution imaging SIMS of organic samples without the fragmentation typically associated with ion beam bombardment. Combined with the J105 SIMS, the GCIB SM extends the available mass range to > 2500 Da with sub-micron resolving power.
