RATIONALE The goal of this research was to construct an effective gas ion source for isotope ratio mass spectrometry, which generates sufficiently strong and stable ion beams for multiple isotope ratio analysis of sulfur and oxygen from readily available gases such as SO2 , CO2 , CO, O2 and chlorine from CH3 Cl gas. METHODS By means of a 60° sector mass spectrometer equipped with a new type of sensitive ion source and with a dual-inlet system and triple collector assembly, we have measured 34… CONTINUE READING
