The application of beam transport theory to mass spectrometer design

Clement, Stephen William James


The basic contention of this thesis is that the concepts and techniques of beam transport theory ca,n be usefully applied to mass spectrometer design. Most important aimong these concepts is that of the beam emittance, which is the area occupied by the ions of the beam in a phase space defined by the transverse (y or z) displacement and the corresponding conjugate momentum. It can be shown that the emittances in both y and z phase spaces are finite and that, for surface ionization...[Show more]
