This infrastructure is centered on chemical imaging techniques, .ie. forming images by probing inherent chemical properties of the target samples. The foundation for most chemical imaging techniques is mass spectrometry imaging (MSI or IMS). Even though mass spectrometry can be used to analyze samples in the gaseous and liquid phase the focus here is on soft and hard materials in different forms. This infrastructure therefore coordinates resources and aim to serve a broad user base from a wide selection of different research areas using Secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS).
