Title: Simple procedure to extract speed distributions from ion images with a large background contribution

Abstract

We present a simple and robust procedure that allows extracting with high fidelity speed distributions from ion images that contain a large background contribution. The procedure requires no detailed knowledge about the background and is conveniently applied after performing the inverse Abel transform that reconstructs the three-dimensional velocity distribution from a recorded image.
