Sector mass spectrometer
Mass spectrometer consisting of one or more magnetic sectors for recording a mass spectrum of a monoenergetic beam of ions. Such instruments may also have one or more electric sectors for energy dispersion that can be arranged for velocity-focusing by compensating for dispersion by the magnetic sector if the beam is not truly monoenergetic. Such a combination provides double focusing of ions of the same m/z, i.e., focusing with respect to both direction and speed.
