Abstract:

Analyses of trace and major elements in group III-V compound matrices by secondary ion mass spectrometry SIMS have shown that practical ion yields are linearly related to the matrix composition. The affinity of the matrix to oxygen appears to be the critical factor in this relationship. A direct relationship between the sloped of these calibration lines, determined for elements in the same column of the periodic table, and the first ionization potential of the respective elements has also been shown.
