Electrosprays are devices in which nanometer sized droplets and/or solvated ions are electrically extracted from a liquid surface and accelerated to high velocities. They are usually constructed from conductive capillaries with one of the ends tapered down to a sharp tip with the purpose of enhancing the local electric field that produces the instability that develops into the Taylor cone structure from which emission occurs. In an alternative configuration, the conductive needles are replaced… CONTINUE READING
