Fourier transform-ion cyclotron resonance-mass spectrometer |
---|
Mass spectrometer based on the principle of ion cyclotron resonance in which an ion in a magnetic field moves in a circular orbit at the cyclotron frequency that is characteristic of its m/z value. Ions are coherently excited to a larger radius orbit using a pulse of radio frequency electric field, and their image charge is detected on receiver plates as a time domain signal. Fourier transformation of the time domain signal results in a frequency domain signal that is converted to a mass spectrum based on the inverse relationship between cyclotron frequency and m/z. |

Fourier transform-ion cyclotron resonance-mass spectrometer |
---|
A high-frequency mass spectrometer in which the cyclotron motion of ions, having different mass/charge ratios, in a constant magnetic field, is excited essentially simultaneously and coherently by a pulse of a radio-frequency electric field applied perpendicularly to the magnetic field. The excited cyclotron motion of the ions is subsequently detected on receiver plates as a time domain signal that contains all the cyclotron frequencies excited. Fourier transformation of the time domain signal results in a frequency domain FT-ICR signal which, on the basis of the inverse proportionality between frequency and mass/charge ratio, can be converted to a mass spectrum. See also ion cyclotron resonance (ICR) mass spectrometer. |

http://goldbook.iupac.org/F02492.html A high-frequency mass spectrometer in which the cyclotron motion of ions, having different mass/charge ratios, in a constant magnetic field is excited essentially simultaneously and coherently by a pulse or a radio-frequency electric field applied perpendicular to the magnetic field. The excited cyclotron motion of the ions is subsequently detected on so-called receiver plates as a time domain signal that contains all the cyclotron frequencies that have been excited. Fourier transformation of the time domain signal results in the frequency domain FT-ICR signal which, on the basis of the inverse proportionality between frequency and the mass/charge ratio, can be converted into a mass spectrum. The term is sometimes contracted to Fourier transform mass spectrometer (FT-MS).

Fourier transform-ion cyclotron resonance-mass spectrometer |

A mass spectrometer based on the principle of ion cyclotron resonance in which an ion in a magnetic field moves in a circular orbit at a frequency characteristic of its m/z value. Ions are coherently excited to a larger radius orbit using a pulse of radio frequency energy and their image charge is detected on receiver plates as a time domain signal. Fourier transformation of the time domain signal results in a frequency domain signal which is converted to a mass spectrum based in the inverse relationship between frequency and m/z.
