Magnetic field scan
Method of producing a mass spectrum from a mono-energetic ion beam by varying the strength of the magnetic field in a sector mass spectrometer.
Note 1: The magnetic field scan is sometimes called B-scan, but this is a misnomer since the symbol B denotes the magnetic flux density. The magnetic field strength H in a vacuum is defined in SI units as H = (1/μ0) B -M where μ0 is the magnetic constant or permeability of the vacuum and M the magnetization. B is often wrongly referred to as "magnetic field strength."
Note 2: A sector magnetic field produces a momentum/charge spectrum of an ion beam, but if all ions have the same translational energy this is equivalent to a mass spectrum. The force F on a particle with charge q and velocity v is F = q(v × B).
