Deconvoluted mass spectrum
Mass spectrum processed with an algorithm designed to extract a desired signal or signals from raw experimental data in which the desired signals have been complicated (convolved) by some interferences or in some other way.

Note: Examples of deconvoluted mass spectra include mass spectra corrected for instrumental mass bias, or extraction of spectra for pure components from the spectrum of a mixture, or a mass (not m/z) spectrum of a biopolymer from an electrospray ionization spectrum containing peaks corresponding to several charge states.
