Abstract:

A simple electrostatic deflection multi-channel time-of-flight ion analyzer optimized to study high energy ion species from laser-produced plasmas is described. For this application moderate species and energy resolution over a wide dynamic energy range is desirable. A dynamic energy range from 1 to 1000 keV per unit charge is achieved with a 20 kV power supply. Design considerations are presented together with some typical experimental results.
