Technical ReportOctober 14, 2021

A time-of-flight mass spectrometer that uses a closed-orbit flight path can achieve a high mass resolving power and a high mass accuracy with a small instrument footprint. It has long been known that a drawback to a closed flight path is an obtained spectrum may contain peaks by ions at a different number of laps...
