Abstract:

The Advanced Mass Spectrometer AMS is a state-of-the-art ion microprobe with fine primary ion beam focus and a unique mass spectrometer. A variable inhomogeneity magnet system, with 288 detectors, all serviced by computer data handling, provides the heart of an instrument which can monitor from mass 17 to 304 amu simultaneously. The AMS has been integrated and has undergone acceptance tests which delineate the instruments initial operating parameters.
