We propose and demonstrate a new method for multiple-stage mass spectrometry (MSn), collision-activated infrared multiphoton dissociation (CA-IRMPD), which is very effective for the quadrupole ion trap mass spectrometer (QITMS). CA-IRMPD uses a combination of focused laser irradiation (beam radius, approximately 0.4 mm) and collisional activation by a(More)
2-Aminopyridine (PA)-derivatized oligosaccharides from IgG were analyzed by using reversed-phase HPLC/mass spectrometry (RP-HPLC/MS) and a MS(n) spectral library, in particular, focusing on two pairs of isomers incompletely separated or coeluted in chromatograms. We previously reported that MS(n) spectral matching considering both major fragment ions (m/z)(More)
Highly complex protein mixtures can be analyzed after proteolysis using liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry (LC/MS). In an LC/MS run, intense peptide ions originating from high-abundance proteins are preferentially analyzed using tandem mass spectrometry (MS(2)), so obtaining the MS(2) spectra of peptide ions from low-abundance proteins is difficult(More)
We report a new hybrid mass spectrometer, which is a combination of a quadrupole ion trap and an orthogonal time-of-flight (TOF) mass spectrometer. This new configuration consists of a collisional-damping chamber (CDC) inserted between an MSn-capable ion trap and a high-mass-accuracy orthogonal-TOF mass spectrometer. Because the CDC converted an ion packet(More)
The increase in surface temperature of the large cabinets of power converters, which are typically made of iron materials (with magnetic characteristics), was investigated. For this investigation, a method combining electromagnetic-field analysis and thermal-fluid analysis by using in-house analysis tools was established. According to the investigation(More)
We developed a new method of coupling the finite elemental method (FEM) with the admittance matrix method to simulate the thermal conductivity of large-scale power electronics systems. The feasibility of this method was confirmed from the simulation results that showed the temperature changes differing by 6.5% from those obtained by using the conventional(More)
