Title: AN ELECTRON MULTIPLIER AS A DETECTOR FOR A SURFACE IONIZATION MASS SPECTROMETER--DESIGN

Abstract

A description of a 14-stage electron multiplier for use amplifying the detector signals in a surface ionization mass spectrometer is given. The system can either measure the multiplier anode current or count the anode pulses. Pulse counting may be used for- signal currents in the range from lO/sup -13/ to 10/sup -18/ amp. The range of the normal electrometer circuit is extended by the electron multiplier so that it measures currents from l0/sup -10/ to 10/sup -15/ amp with a fast response. (auth)
