Zondervan, A.; Claymore, V.; Kennedy, J.V.; Purcell, C.R.; Markwitz, A. 2007 Milestones achieved in the framework of the FRST programme ''Sustaining ion-beam and mass-spectrometry capabilities (IMS)'' for the period July 2006-June 2007. Lower Hutt, N.Z.: GNS Science. GNS Science report 2007/25 9 p.
Abstract: The performance of three facilities at the National Isotope Centre is presented and compared against a set of milestone achievement measures that were contracted through the FRST programme “Sustaining ion-beam and mass-spectrometry capabilities (IMS)”. These facilities are: (i) ion beam analysis & nanotechnology, (ii) stable isotope laboratory, and (iii) accelerator mass spectrometry. All facilities have performed well as instruments for research during the period July 2006 – June 2007: facility equipment was kept in good shape and all capabilities have been maintained, if not improved. In cases where a performance score was lower than expected, as outlined in the IMS contract, some explanation and a path for remedy are given. (auth)
