|GOLD BOOK DEFINITION
IUPAC. Compendium of Chemical Terminology, 2nd ed. (the Gold Book). Compiled by A. D. McNaught and A.Wilkinson. Blackwell Scientific Publications, Oxford (1997).
Generally an assembly composed of: (i) an ionization chamber in which a stream of electrons flows from a hot filament across a stream of gas to collector (the potential between filament and collector is usually between 50 and 70 ); (ii) a device for the acceleration of these ions.
