Ion Beam Analysis (IBA) is an important family of modern analytical techniques involving the use of MeV ion beams to probe the composition and obtain elemental depth profiles in the near-surface layer of solids.

IBA is an active areas of research where Berkeley Lab scientists are using the latest techniques to detect elements in the sub-monolayer range.
