The concept of traceability of material characteristics certified in calibration standards and reference materials as supplied for ion beam analysis is described. Instrumentation and methods to achieve this traceability are presented. Employing thin layers as internal standards on implanted samples allows these principles to be applied to high-accuracy determinations of the retained dose of implanted atoms through Rutherford backscattering spectroscopy (RBS). This technique is demonstrated through the characterisation of a Bi-implanted silicon reference material.
