Ion Beam Materials Laboratory
(IBML) is a Los Alamos National Laboratory resource devoted to the
characterization and modification of surfaces through the use of ion
beams. The IBML is operated as a part of the Structure/Property Relations
Group (MST-8) in the Materials Science and Technology Division and
is classified as a DOE user resource.
The core of the laboratory consists of a 3 MV tandem accelerator and
a 200 kV ion implanter together with several beam lines. Attached
to each beam line is a series of experimental stations that support
various research programs. The operation of IBML and its interactions
with users are organized around core facilities and experimental stations.
The IBML provides and operates the core facilities, while supporting
the design and implementation of specific apparati needed for experiments
requested by users of the facility. The result being, a facility with
competencies in routine ion beam experiments and the versatility to
cater to the individual researchers needs.
