We examined Drosophila spp. using a penetrative ion microprobe technique that allows us to quantify element contents in whole organs and organisms. Comparatively non-penetrative techniques, such as electron microscopy, could not have been used to make many of these measurements because material is lost during sectioning. We found that zinc was accumulated(More)
The early uses of Scanning Transmission Ion Microscopy (STIM) with MeV ions are reviewed. The transformation of STIM energy-loss images into maps of areal density is discussed, and is illustrated with images of a fruit fly head (Drosophila melanogaster). Freeze-dried male heads are transparent to 4-MeV protons in the dorsal and frontal directions, but in(More)
