Originally designed for biological analysis, the J105 is equipped with a host of features to get the best results from any biological sample.
The J105 has a versatile range of features that make it ideal for materials analysis applications.
The challenge of biological SIMS has always been balancing spatial resolution with sensitivity, i.e. imaging at a resolution small enough to see the features of interest, but large enough to see the molecules of interest.
With our range of high-performance gas cluster ions beams, including the patented Water Cluster Source, the J105 delivers unrivalled sensitivity to molecular ions, producing incredibly rich spectra even at resolutions down to 1.5 microns.
GCIB SM, Water Cluster Source, Cryo-Sample Handling
Imaging drug compounds and their metabolites within cells is a major priority for pharmaceutical development. Such a task poses a significant challenge however, requiring simultaneous high-sensitivity, high-spatial resolution, as well as 3D analysis.
With the J105 SIMS you can perform high-resolution 2D and 3D analysis with unparalleled molecular sensitivity, letting you see the compounds you’re really interested in, not just the fragments.
GCIB SM, Water Cluster Source, Cryo-Sample Handling
Medical and bio-medical devices are not uniform, flat samples. Fortunately, due to its unique design, the J105 can analyse even complex 3D structures such as stents and scaffolds, without loss of performance.
With a range of gas cluster beams, including our patented Water Cluster Source that maximise sensitivity to biomolecules, the J105 SIMS is an extremely capable instrument for medical research.

Energy research is one of the most pressing topics of the 21st century, and the J105 SIMS is equipped with the necessary tools to tackle any analysis situation.
Protect sensitive devices and samples from exposure to water vapour with the NEW ultra-low humidity glove box, which reduces the partial pressure of H2O to 5x10-7 Pa. Prevent mobile species from migrating during analysis using the cryo-SIMS capabilities, and view the samples as they really are.
Ultra-Low Humidity Glove Box, Cryo-Sample Handling
Liquid metal ion beams cause high levels of fragmentation and damage to surfaces, which must then be removed by a GCIB. This reduces depth resolution and adds unnecessary complexity to the experiment. With the J105 SIMS, the GCIB is the primary beam, so low-fragmentation is assured, no etch-only cycles are required, and high depth resolution is guaranteed.
The highest energy GCIB on the market, the GCIB SM is capable of etching through soft materials such as polymers at unprecedented speed and with minimal damage, enabling much larger 3D analysis volumes than ever before.
GCIB SM, Depth Profiling, 3D Imaging
From anti-reflection coatings, to wear resistance, to waterproofing, coatings play a key role in many products. However, as thicknesses can range from just a few nanometres to hundreds of microns, analysis over such a wide range can be difficult.
With the J105 SIMS, perform 3D depth profiles from nanometres to microns deep, with a range of ion beams tailored for different material types. Sputtering and analysis occur simultaneously on the J105, so there is no need for “etch-only” cycles, ensuring maximum depth resolution.
GCIM SM, IOG C60-40, 3D Imaging
Understanding how compounds interact with the skin, both pharmaceutical and cosmetic, is a trillion-dollar industry. As a high sensitivity technique, Water Cluster SIMS is ideally suited to investigating low abundance analytes in biological tissue such as the absorption of compounds by the skin.
With the most advanced cluster ion beams of any SIMS, the J105 SIMS delivers class-leading sensitivity and high spatial resolution imaging combined with high performance mass spectrometry.

Semiconductor analysis can range from shallow junction depth profiling, to high-resolution 3D imaging. With five different primary ion beams to choose from, the J105 can be tailored for different materials or experiment types.
Choose from a 40kV C60 beam providing high-resolution imaging and uniform sputter rates even on mixed materials, ideal for planar devices. Or the FLIG 5, an ultra-low energy O2/Cs beam, with unmatched current density, the best choice for shallow junction depth profiling.
IOG C60-40, FLIG 5, Depth Profiling, 3D Imaging
Textiles provide a unique challenge for surface analysis techniques as they are commonly made from insulating materials and, being made up of fibres, cannot easily be made flat.
As the J105's innovative design decouples the primary beam from the ToF analyser, mass accuracy is independent of sample height, so even complex 3D structures such as fibres can be analysed without loss of performance.
Complex Structure Analysis, Charge Compensation
Metallic samples are commonly polycrystalline in nature, which can lead to issues like channeling and preferential sputtering when using liquid metal ion sources. Using a C60 beam however provides high lateral resolution but without any preferential sputtering.
What's more, if samples are rough, there's no need to use destructive polishing techniques to ensure good mass spec results. With the J105, mass accuracy and mass resolution remain consistent across every part of the sample, independent of sample topography.
IOG C60-40, IOG 25, Complex Structure Analysis
Combining both morphological with organo-geochemical evidence strengthens any argument that a given geological feature could be associated with biological activity. High energy gas cluster ion beams on the J105 maximise sensitivity to organic molecules, with spatial resolutions down to just 1.5 microns, enabling the detection of biomarkers in fossilized material.
