Nier-Johnson geometry
Arrangement for a double-focusing mass spectrometer in which a deflection of π/2 rad in a radial electrostatic energy analyzer is combined with a magnetic deflection of π/3 rad, thus providing a single point of focus for ions of the same m/z but with spreads in both trajectory direction and translational energy.

Nier-Johnson geometry

An arrangement for a double-focusing mass spectrometer in which a deflection of π/2 radians in a radial electrostatic field analyser is followed by a magnetic deflection of π/3 radians. The electrostatic analyser uses a symmetrical object-image arrangement and the magnetic analyser is used asymmetrically.
