Continuous dynode particle multiplier
continuous dynode particle multiplier

channel electron multiplier

Ion-to-electron detector in which the ion strikes the inner surface of a continuous tube device and induces the production of secondary electrons that, in turn, impinge on the inner surfaces of the device to produce more secondary electrons. This avalanche effect produces an increase in the final measured current pulse.
