|The deflection of charged particles in a magnetic field due to a force equal to qv × B where q is the particle charge, v its velocity and B the magnetic field. Magnetic deflection of an ion beam is used for m/z separation in a magnetic sector mass spectrometer.|
|Considered between 2004 and 2006 but not included in the 2006 PAC submission|

|ORANGE BOOK DEFINITION
IUPAC. Analytical Division. Compendium of Analytical Nomenclature (the Orange Book). Definitive Rules, 1979.
The deflection of an ion beam as a result of the motion of the ions in a magnetic field (the magnetic sector). Motion is generally at right angles to the direction of the magnetic field.

|GOLD BOOK DEFINITION
IUPAC. Compendium of Chemical Terminology, 2nd ed. (the Gold Book). Compiled by A. D. McNaught and A.Wilkinson. Blackwell Scientific Publications, Oxford (1997).
The deflection of an ion beam as a result of the motion of the ions in a magnetic field (magnetic sector). Generally the direction of motion of the ions is at right angles to the direction of the magnetic field, and the motion is uniform.
