Title: Flexible ion conduit

Abstract

An apparatus includes a flexible ion conduit extending between an input end situated to receive ions and an output end to define an ion passageway having an axis, the flexible ion conduit including an inner conduit portion having an inner surface facing the interior ion passageway and having a plurality of RF electrodes adjacently situated to receive RF voltages that are out of phase with respect to each other to direct the received ions away from the inner surface and into the ion passageway.
