Improving the performance of microscope mass spectrometry imaging

Abstract:

Mass spectrometry imaging (MSI) is a powerful tool that provides mass-specific surface images with micron or sub-micron spatial resolutions. In a microscope MSI experiment, large sample surfaces are illuminated with a defocused laser or primary ion beam, enabling all surface molecules to be desorbed and ionised simultaneously before being electrostatically projected onto a position-sensitive imaging detector at the end of a time-of-flight mass analyser. Traditionally only the image of one ...
