Quadrupole mass analyzer

An arrangement in which ions with a prescribed mass/charge ratio are made to describe a stable path under the influence of a static and a high frequency electric field and are then detected. Ions with different mass/charge ratios are separated from the detected ions because of their unstable paths.
