Ion Beam Analysis Research Laboratory

Advanced materials, nanotechnology and environmental pollution measurement.

The Ion Beam Analysis Research Laboratory offers high quality capabilities in materials analysis and fabrication that are unique to New Zealand. We are a part of the National Isotope Centre at GNS Science.

  • Analysis – high-accuracy elemental analysis (hydrogen to uranium) of materials and surfaces from a wide range of sample types.
  • Fabrication – production of nanosurfaces, advanced materials and ion implantation equipment.

We are actively involved in research and consultancy projects in New Zealand and internationally.

Applications for our work include:

  • advanced materials and nanotechnology in sensors and optoelectronics.
  • determining pollutant sources in air, water and soil.
  • elemental analysis of biological and geological samples.
