Computer control of time delay of the extraction of ions from the ion source of the TOF mass spectrometer is presented. Owing to the computer, the user has the full control of power parameters and ion current delay, which is about microseconds.
The computer program controlling MALDI system and a time of flight mass spectrometer is described. This program allows to reduce a number of necessary activities for operation of used machines as well as to raise an operational safety of this equipment. Additionally, an advantage of the computer control is possibility of quick changing of any measurement… (More)
