5 kV. The sample was pre-sputtered for 5 min with a 15 µm2 raster applied, producing a shallow 25 µm2 pit. Analyses were then performed with the primary beam focused to a 12 µm diameter spot centered within this pre-sputtered area. The field aperture size was adjusted to restrict collection of secondary ions to an area of 15–20 µm2, just slightly larger than this spot diameter. Secondary ions were extracted into the mass spectrometer through a nominal potential of 10 kV. 33Da (background, 1s), 10B+ (6s), 11B+ (4s) and 30Si+ (2s).
