Linked scan at constant B2(E0-E) / Linked Scan at Constant B2(E0-E)
A linked scan at constant B2(E0-E) is performed on a sector mass spectrometer that incorporates at least one magnetic sector plus one electric sector placed in reverse geometry configureation. The accelerating voltage, V, is fixed and the magnetic field, B, and electric field, E, are scanned simultaneously to maintain the quantity B2(E0-E) at a constant value. This linked scan records a constant neutral mass loss (or gain) spectrum of dissociation or other reactions occurring in a field free region (FFR) between the two sectors.
