Kinetic energy of free electrons affects MALDI positive ion yield via capture cross-section.


A method for enhancing positive analyte ion signal in MALDI is described. The idea is based on influencing the kinetic energy of free electrons emitted from the organic/metal interface. It has been recently shown that free electrons in MALDI have energies around 1 eV. This energy is close to the maximum capture cross-section of most common MALDI matrices… (More)
