Correcting the fundamental ion mobility equation for field effects.

Abstract

The fundamental ion mobility equation computes the energy-averaged collision cross section as a function of measured drift velocity, electric field strength, ion and neutral masses, and drift gas state parameters. As field strength approaches zero, in particular when the drift velocity drops below about 4% of the average ion-neutral thermal speed, the… (More)
