Principles of grazing incidence SID and a brief overview of previous works are summarized and the experimental setup for grazing incidence SID experiments is described. New results with fullerene C60 are presented; these demonstrate that grazing incidence SID is not a special case of the conventional SID.

    The pseudorandom method for time-of-flight analysis has the advantage over the conventional method of a greatly improved efficiency, but, according to previous theory, the disadvantage that the time resolution is worse. Here we present an improved theory of pseudorandom modulation. We show that...
