  • Complex samples require multidimensional measurements with high resolution for full characterization of biological and environmental systems. To address this challenge, we developed a drift tube-based ion mobility spectrometry-Orbitrap mass spectrometry (IMS-Orbitrap MS) platform. To circumvent the timing difference between the fast IMS separation and the slow Orbitrap MS acquisition, we utilized a dual gate and pseudorandom sequence to multiplex ions into the drift tube and Orbitrap. The instrument was designed to operate in signal averaging (SA), single multiplexing (SM) and double multiplexing (DM) IMS modes to fully optimize the signal-to-ratio of the measurements. For the SM measurements, a previously developedmore » algorithm was used to reconstruct the IMS data, while a new algorithm was developed for the DM analyses. The new algorithm is a two-step process that first recovers the SM data from the encoded DM data and then decoded the SM data. The algorithm also performs multiple refining procedures in order to minimize the demultiplexing artifacts traditionally observed in such scheme. The new IMS-Orbitrap MS platform was demonstrated for the analysis of proteomic and petroleum samples, where the integration of IMS and high mass resolution proved essential for accurate assignment of molecular formulae.« less
  • A time-of-flight mass spectrometer (TOFMS), has been designed and built at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), with the aim of studying the ionic fragmentation of gas-phase compounds, using synchrotron radiation. Our main research interest consists on the observation of single, double and multiple ionization as a function of the incident photon energy, with particular emphasis on core-excited molecules. These processes are usually associated with the formation of very fast ions. The spectrometer employs, accordingly, a collimating lens which allows for the collection of ions having kinetic energies up to 40 eV with almost 100% efficiency. By changingmore » the lens voltage, the spectrometer can also be operated in a highly discriminating condition, which provides an easy and accurate method for the determination of the kinetic energy release. In order to be tested, the spectrometer was adapted to a brazilian beamline installed at CAMD (Center for Advanced Microstructures and Devices). Mass and coincidence (PEPICO, PIPICO and PEPIPICO) spectra were obtained, in the 12 to 310 eV photon energy range, for several compounds. A mass resolution (M/{delta}M) of 450 was attained at 132 a.m.u., with xenon.« less
  • A compact electron ion coincidence (EICO) analyzer that uses a coaxially symmetric mirror electron energy analyzer and a miniature polar-angle-resolved time-of-flight ion mass spectrometer with four concentric anodes was developed for surface science and surface analysis. The apparatus is especially useful in the study of ion desorption stimulated by an Auger process because information on the mass, yield, desorption polar angle, and kinetic energy of ions can be obtained for the selected core-ionization-final-states or the selected Auger-final-states. The analyzer can be used also for analysis of the configuration of specific surface molecules because the desorption polar angles reflect the directionmore » of surface bonds. The EICO analyzer was evaluated by measuring polar-angle-resolved-ion yield spectra and coincidence spectra of Auger-electron and polar-angle-resolved H{sup +} from condensed water.« less
  • A new laser analytical device has been developed that is based on resonance-enhanced multiphoton ionization in the very center of a radio-frequency quadrupole ion trap. Applications in speciation anlaysis of biological and enviromental samples and in materials science will all benefit from laser-optical selectivity in the resonance excitation process, combined with mass-spectropic sensivity which is further enhanced by the ion accumulation and storage capability.
