    We have constructed a focusing type time-of-light atom-probe field-ion microscope (APFIM). This atom probe has unique features of (1) low-temperature sample cooling capability (18 K) which allows stable He ion image observations of even aluminum alloys and (2) switchable detector system with a channeltron electron multiplier and channelplate electron multiplier, in addition to the standard features as a modern APFIM. This paper describes the details of the IMR atom probe.
