The Ion Trap Detector


The ion trap detector is a modified form of the quadrapole mass spectrometer, but was designed more specifically as a chromatography detector than for use as a combined gas chromatography/mass spectrometry instrument for structure elucidation and solute identification. The electrode orientation of the quadrapole ion trap mass spectrometer is shown in figure 28.
