In situ characterizations of the microstructural evolution of materials subjected to one or two ion beams are one of the characteristics of the MOSAIC platform.

Studies at the nanometric scale are carried out, at a given temperature, using the in situ Transmission Electron Microscope with one or two ion beams, coming from the IRMA ion implanter and/or the ARAMIS ion accelerator. This installation, unique in the world due to the diversity of the beams available (nature and energy of the ions), is located in the JANNuS-Orsay experimental hall.

The evolution of the damage induced by ion implantation in a single crystal is studied thanks to the coupling of IRMA and ARAMIS accelerators, making it possible to incorporate elements by ion implantation (up to 600°C), and analyze the evolution of the microstructure by in situ RBS/C.
