At the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf a new AMS (accelerator mass spectrometry) facility, DREsden AMS (DREAMS), with a 6–MV tandem accelerator has been successfully installed . The range of applications will be broaden
by setting up a Super-SIMS (SIMS = Secondary ion mass spectrometry) as an ultrasensitive analytical method for the determination of stable elements and isotopes. A commercial SIMS (from CAMECA) is connected to the accelerator and the high-energy setup of DREAMS, which will be additionally equipped with a time-of-flight detector system. The spatial resolution (x,y: ∼ 3 µm; z: ∼ 5 nm) of the SIMS will be kept as the SIMS is utilized as the negative ion source for the accelerator-based mass spectrometry. By the complete destruction of molecules detection limits some orders of magnitude better than for traditional dynamic SIMS are expected, i.e. ∼10−9–10−12, see e.g. . The focus of applications will be geological samples in the framework of resource technology research.
