|Fast atom bombardment ionization|
The ionization of any species by the interaction of a focused beam of neutral atoms having a translational energy of several thousand eV with a sample that is typically dissolved in a solvent matrix. See also secondary ionization.

Orange Book Entry
This term refers to the ionization of any species by causing interaction of the sample (which may be dissolved in a solvent matrix) and a beam of neutral atoms having a high translational energy. (See also Secondary Ionization).
