  • Patent number: 10804088
    Abstract: A mass spectrometry method comprises: generating ions; directing the ions through an ion optical component within a first chamber having a first vacuum pressure, the ion optical component maintained at a first electrical potential; transferring the ions through an ion guide within a second chamber having a second vacuum pressure less than the first vacuum pressure, the ion guide maintained at a second electrical potential, wherein a difference between the first and second potentials imparts kinetic energy that causes collision-induced ion fragmentation within the second chamber that removes adduct species; and transferring the ions into another ion guide within a third chamber having a third vacuum pressure less than the second vacuum pressure, the other ion guide maintained at a third electrical potential, wherein a difference between the third and second potentials reduces a portion of the imparted kinetic energy of the ions passing into the third chamber.

  • Patent number: 7910377
    Abstract: The invention provides methods and apparatuses that utilize mass spectrometry for preparation of a surface to have catalytic activity through molecular soft-landing of mass selected ions. Mass spectrometry is used to generate combinations of atoms in a particular geometrical arrangement, and ion soft-landing selects this molecular entity or combination of entities and gently deposits the entity or combination intact onto a surface.
