DRAFT DEFINITION
Magnetic sector
A device that produces a magnetic field perpendicular to a charged particle beam that deflects the beam to an extent that is proportional to the particle momentum per unit charge. For a monoenergetic beam, the deflection is proportional to m/z.
Considered between 2004 and 2006 but not included in the 2006 PAC submission
