    Two new methods for operating a time-of-flight mass spectrometer are suggested. The first is a beam compression method which allows separation of one kind of particle (one m/q ratio) at a time, from a beam continously emitted by an ion source. Due to the continuous operation of the source a...

    A novel design to achieve the gating, bunching, and potential re-referencing of an ion beam, suitable for use in a photofragment spectrometer, is presented. The device simultaneously performs all three functions in a simple, compact, and easily aligned unit. It requires only a single digital...

    Cross sections for the reactions of Ar+ with H2, D2, and HD to form ArH+ and ArD+ are measured using a new guided ion beam tandem mass spectrometer which affords an experimental energy range from 0.05 to 500 eV laboratory. The apparatus and experimental techniques are described in detail. Cross...

    The ion beam spectrometer (IBS) is one of the three spectrometers in the Cassini plasma spectrometer instrument aboard the Cassini/Huygens spacecraft. The IBS is a very high energy resolution hemispherical electrostatic analyzer. The design values of the IBS are analyzer gap 2.5 mm, and middle...
