An experiment is described for measuring the charge neutralization coefficient between NO and O2-. The method employs two rapidly opening mechanical shutters, one between adjacent chambers containing the different ions, and one between the chambers and the analyzing region of a timeof-flight mass spectrometer. The shutters are opened by a gas gun operated outside the vacuum system. The theory of the method and the construction of the apparatus is presented. No measurements have been obtained as yet. Author
