A miniaturized non-radioactive electron emitter for atmospheric pressure chemical ionization

Abstract

In atmospheric pressure chemical ionization as usually used in ion mobility spectrometry radioactive beta minus sources provide free electrons with high kinetic energy to initiate a chemical gas phase ionization of the analytes. In this paper we present a simple to manufacture miniaturized non-radioactive electron source to provide the free electrons at… (More)
