From Mass Spectrometry Terms
A detector in which the charged particles are accelerated to a high velocity and impinge on a conversion dynode, emitting secondary electrons. The electrons are accelerated onto a phosphor screen, which emits photons that are in turn detected using a photomultiplier or other photon detector.
