Optimization of a Vacuum Ultraviolet Photoionization source for GC used with a High Resolution TOFMS

Poster

-Tune solution allows optimization of ion source parameters for
both proton transfer and direct ionization
-Independent ionization processes exist for M+ and MH+
-Optimizing for dopant signal intensity yields inferior results
-Degree of fragmentation remains relatively constant over a
range of source conditions
