Abstract:

The influence of changing the magnetic field on the resolution and sensitivity of the omegatron mass spectrometer is shown for krypton. Good resolution may be extended through the mass range of the xenon isotopes mass number 136 by carefully selecting the operating parameters of the omegatron. The resolution is plotted against the magnetic field strength for Kr84, and follows the theoretical predictions within experimental error. The effect of varying the other parameters of the omegatron with krypton is shown and discussed. A summation of the work with xenon is also given.
