DRAFT DEFINITION
Post-source decay

A technique specific to reflectron time-of-flight mass spectrometers where product ions of metastable transitions or collision-induced dissociations generated in the drift tube prior to entering the reflectron are refocused to yield product ion spectra.

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