Sarafian learned that WHOI geologist Nobu Shimizu had developed a technique to measure water trapped in glass pockets in basaltic seafloor rocks, using the Northeast National Ion Microprobe
Facility at WHOI.
The researchers analyzed five different samples at the Northeast National Ion Microprobe
Facility -- a state-of-the-art national facility housed at WHOI that utilizes secondary ion mass spectrometers.

We are also grateful to the Laboratory of Isotope Geology at The University of Georgia and the Sensitive High Mass-Resolution Ion Microprobe
(SHRIMP-RG) team at Stanford University, California (USA).
Louis have used a new ion microprobe
to map oxygen-isotope ratios at very tiny scales within individual dust particles.

Chemical analytical data: Means of thirteen sets of electron microprobe data (Li, Be and B by ion microprobe
): [Li.sub .2]O 0.01, [Na.sub.2]O 0.00, [K.sub.2]O 0.03, BeO 2.51, MgO 15.49, CaO 0.16, MnO 0.01, FeO 9.43, ZnO 0.10, [B.sub.2][O.sub.3] 0.05, [A1.sub.2][O.sub.3] 51.15, [Cr.sub.2][O.sub.3] 0.01, [Fe.sub.2][O.sub.3] 0.70, [SiO.sub.2] 20.27, Total 99.92 wt.%.
The test uses an instrument called an ion microprobe
, which blasts a few atoms from the gem's surface.
could lead the way to development of quantum electronics
Shimizu is a senior scientist in the WHOI Department of Geology and Geophysics, as well as founder and director of the Northeast National Ion Microprobe
