Title: Apparatus and method for hydrogen and oxygen mass spectrometry of the terrestrial magnetosphere

Abstract

A detector element for mass spectrometry of a flux of heavy and light ions, that includes: a first detector to detect light ions that transit through a foil operatively placed in front of the first detector, and a second detector that detects the flux of heavy and light ions.
