Ion energy loss spectrum

ion kinetic energy spectrum in mass spectrometry

A spectrum obtained when a beam of ions is separated according to the translational energy-to-charge ratios of the ionic species contained within it. A radial electric field (E) achieves separation of the various ionic species in this way.
