Abstract

A series of small MALDI-TOF mass spectrometer were developed for use in harsh environments and remote sensing applications. This instrument exhibited high ion transmission and a moderate mass resolving power. The advantages of using non-homogeneous electric fields in MALDI TOF mass spectrometer design to improve space focusing at the detector, were discussed. Simion modeling indicated that the shallow field generated in the exit aperture compensates for the radial dispersion inherent to the ionization process and produced relatively narrow beams.
