Virtual The Americas IONTOF User School 2024
We are happy to announce that IONTOF will hold a virtual User School from July 9th until July 11th 2024 for our TOF-SIMS users in the Americas time zones. Our applications specialists have designed an online program that will allow an interactive exchange between themselves and participants using our video conferencing tool. Each session is designed to last approximately three hours which should be enough time to cover the respective content, as well as leave time for individual questions and discussion.
The courses are dedicated to TOF-SIMS users and will cover all contents of the traditional face-to-face User School but also latest new features. This includes typical workflows in an analytical SIMS lab, ranging from sample holder preparation to the selection of appropriate measurement conditions and finally focusing on data evaluation and interpretation, using a comprehensive range of tools present in the latest SurfaceLab 7.4 software.
If you would like to attend the Americas IONTOF User School courses 2024 please use the registration form below. Please note that places will be allocated on a "first come first served" basis.

Ian Gilmore wins Alfred Benninghoven Award
IONTOF is proud to announce that Prof. Dr. Ian Gilmore has been honoured with the prestigious Alfred Benninghoven Award. It is presented to individuals who have made significant contributions to the field of Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry (SIMS) and related techniques.

Prof. Gilmore, from the National Physical Laboratory (UK), has been recognized for his groundbreaking ideas leading to the development of a novel instrument that marries the benefits of ToF-SIMS with the high-mass resolution and structural analysis capabilities of the Orbitrap mass spectrometer. This innovation represents a major leap forward in the analytical power of SIMS, providing unprecedented insights into material composition and structure.
Prof. Gilmore's achievement not only reflects his personal dedication and expertise but also underscores the collaborative spirit and innovative drive that are hallmarks of the SIMS community. His work will undoubtedly inspire future advancements and applications, furthering our understanding of material surfaces and interfaces.
As the recipient of the Alfred Benninghoven Award, Prof. Gilmore will deliver a plenary lecture at the upcoming SIMS 24 conference, where he will share his insights and experiences with fellow researchers and practitioners. He will also receive a commemorative plaque or medal and a cash prize of 5000 euros, celebrating his outstanding contribution to the field.
The award, named after Prof. Dr. Alfred Benninghoven, himself a pioneer in the development of SIMS, serves as a testament to the enduring impact of innovative research and the continuous pursuit of excellence. IONTOF extends its warmest congratulations to Prof. Gilmore and his whole team and looks forward to their continued contributions to the scientific community.

SurfaceLab 7.4 Release - Introducing HDR mode for M6 instruments
The most recent version of our SurfaceLab software, SurfaceLab 7.4, has been released. This update brings a plethora of new features and enhancements for operating our instruments and analysing data. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced user, SurfaceLab 7.4 aims to streamline your workflow and provide valuable insights.
A major improvement was made in how to acquire images or profiles with an M6 instruments introducing a High Dynamic Range (HDR) mode to acquire a low current and high current data set of the same Field of View in one automated run. This approach, inspired from HDR photography, helps to generate datasets without saturated profile lines or pixels in
images at maintained high sensitivity. The new release further provides new 3D correction features that not only apply the 3D representations, but actually correct the underlying data, allowing to extract corrected depth profiles.
Further features are an automated wedge preparation routine, or the possibility to align external images (from a microscope for example) with the sample holder image in the Sample Holder Info Editor for even easier and more precise sample navigation.
YouTube videos highlighting several features will become available in the coming months.

Several helpful videos on SurfaceLab 7 features and our IONTOF techniques are
already available and will certainly help you with our software tools and to gain more knowledge of our technology. Subscribe to our YouTube channel to stay tuned…

IONTOF Announces Formation of New Subsidiary, IONTOF Japan K.K.
In 1996, IONTOF installed the first TOF SIMS instrument in Japan. From the very beginning, IONTOF could count on strong partners who supported our technical know-how with their many years of experience in sales and service. In Japan, IONTOF was first represented by CAMECA Japan and later by Hitachi High-Tech Science. During these successful times, more than 70 instruments were installed and IONTOF developed from a newcomer to an established market leader for TOF-SIMS instrumentation worldwide.
To further strengthen and improve support for our Japanese customers, IONTOF is very pleased to announce the formation of IONTOF Japan K.K..

The new company will take over all Hitachi High-Tech Science sales and service activities from April 1, 2022 onwards.

We are very grateful and proud that almost the entire Hitachi High-Tech Science sales and service team will join the new company to continue the successful work and further improve the service with the new support, commitment and flexibility that only a smaller company can provide.
IONTOF Japan will have its premises at German Industry Park in Yokohama, where offices, spare parts stock, and our demonstration facility will be available in one spot.

We hope that you will continue to support our work and soon benefit from the results of the new and even closer cooperation between IONTOF Japan and its German-based parent company. Further information about the new setup can be found on our new IONTOF Japan homepage at

Extremely Successful Launch of the all new M6 at SIMS 22 in Kyoto
The latest conference on secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS 22) was again a well organised and successful event. Thanks to Prof Jiro Matsuo and his team we all got a very positive impression of Japan and its unique culture.
Especially the conference dinner and the opportunity for selected participants to try on the traditional Japanese Kimono dress was very well received and we heard rumours that some candidates thought about changing their dress code even back home. For IONTOF the most important part of the conference was the launch of our all new M6.
Sven Kayser from the IONTOF sales team gave a comprehensive introduction of the new TOF-SIMS system during the first luncheon secession and we were all very pleased by the extremely positive response. It was very nice to finally see that all the hard work and the intensive design thoughts were appreciated by all our users.
