Nonlinear Dynamics Of Resonances In, And Ejection From Paul Traps
This thesis presents results of investigations that have been carried out to understand dynamics in nonlinear Paul trap mass spectrometers. Of the three problems that have been taken up for study in this thesis, the first ...
Performance Characterization Of A Cylindrical Ion Trap Mass Spectrometer
The cylindrical ion trap (CIT) is made up of two planar endcap electrodes and a cylindrical ring electrode. The investigation of simpler geometries like CIT has been started off in recent years with a view towards ...
Electronics Instrumentation For Ion Trap Mass Spectrometers
The thesis aims at building an experimental setup for conducting the boundary ejection and resonance ejection experiments on wide variety of ion trap mass analyzers. The experimental setup has two parts namely power ...
Escape Of High Mass Ions Due To Initial Thermal Energy And Its Implications For RF Trap Design
This thesis investigates the loss of high mass ions due to the initial thermal energy in ion trap mass analyzers. It provides an analytical expression for estimating the percentage loss of ions of a given mass at a particular ...
Axially Symmetric Equivalents Of Three-Dimensional Rf Ion Traps
This thesis presents axially symmetric equivalents of three-dimensional rf ion traps. Miniaturization in mass spectrometry has focused on miniaturizing mass analyzers. Decrease in mass analyzer size facilitates reduction ...
A Preliminary Investigation Of The Role Of Magnetic Fields In Axially Symmetric rf Ion Traps
Axially symmetric rf ion traps consists of a mass analyser having three electrodes, one of which is a central ring electrode and the other two are endcap electrodes. In the ideal Paul trap mass spectrometer, the electrodes ...
