Sevugarajan, S and Menon, AG (2004) Design considerations for linear Paul trap mass spectrometer under development. UNSPECIFIED.
This brief note presents design considerations for a linear ion trap mass spectrometer in our laboratory. The motivation for this effort was to investigate the increased sensitivity that could be obtained in such a configuration in contrast to the conventional three-dimensional Paul trap mass analyzers. This technical report discusses the equation of ion motion and then the conditions for stability in the presence of a dc trapping field in the axial direction, we also present the influence of the trapping voltage, rod length and rf frequency on mass range.
