Abstract:

The purpose of this project was to assemble and demonstrate the functioning of a mass spectrometermass spectrometer MSMS system that could be used eventually to study collisions between electrons and positive ions. In this phase of the program, fragmentation of ions between the first and second mass spectrometers was accomplished by collisions with a neutral gas. The existing mass spectrometer equipment was used to construct the new MSMS system. This report describes the design and construction of the MSMS instrument and gives the results from the early instrument performance tests.
