A pulsed ion deflection system for background reduction in (252)CF-plasma desorption mass spectrometry.

Abstract

The use of an electrostatic particle guide (EPG) for background reduction in a time-of-flight mass spectrometer is described. Operating with reverse polarity, the EPG deflects ions radially from the beam axis, separating the ionic and neutral components of the beam. Use of the deflection EPG in a synchronized pulsed mode with a barrier disk aligned in the… (More)
