DRAFT DEFINITION
Post-source decay

A fragmentation of a metastable ion that has once been fully accelerated. Usually this term is associated with time-of-flight mass spectrometers equipped with a reflectron, which separates fragment ions generated in the drift tube prior to entering the reflectron.

Considered between 2004 and 2006 but not included in the 2006 PAC submission
