Ion beam analysis facilities

Ion beam analysis facilities is located in the Accelerator Laboratory and operated by Accelerator based materials research group.  The ion beam analysis research offers high quality capabilities in materials analysis and fabrication.  An essential part of the work of the group is also to train students on applications of accelerators in materials science and technology. The group uses MeV ion beams from Pelletron to probe the elemental compositional and structural properties of materials, keV beams from helium ion microscope (HIM) and does atomic layer deposition (ALD) with state-of-the-art equipment. Access to ion beam analysis and helium ion microscopy at JYFL is supported for eligible external research teams via EU H2020 project RADIATE.
