Neutralization of a Proton Beam through a Charge Exchange Cell

Application ID: 16631


Gas cells have several applications in the design of scientific instruments. A gas cell is used to define a high-pressure region within the instrument's main vacuum system. For example, in this application, note we are designing a high-pressure region 100 mm long, with an operating pressure of 1e-3 Torr inside the collision cell and a main vacuum system pressure of 1e-5 Torr. In mass spectrometry, typical applications are the removal of mass spectral interferences in Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (ICPMS) or as a collision cell promoting ion molecule reactions or fragmentation in tandem mass spectrometry (MS-MS).

This model requires the Particle Tracing Module.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
