Eponymous Mass Spectrometry: The Brubaker Prefilter and Kendrick Mass

September 1, 2013

An important method of recognition in the scientific community is to use an individual's name in a description of the contribution, known as an eponymous tribute. Mass spectrometry showcases a number of inventions named after the inventor. Here, we explain two: the Brubaker prefilter and Kendrick mass.

The Standard Definition of the Kilogram: A Grave Matter

March 1, 2013

A close look at the distinct definitions of mass and current research and proposals for redefining the kilogram in terms of natural constants

More Ways to Make Ions

November 1, 2012

The basics of a few "less often seen" ionization methods are described.

Those Ions Know What They Are Doing: Part II

September 1, 2012

Here, we expand on some of the central tenets of models introduced in part I and describe the transition state invoked in unimolecular dissociation reactions.

Those Ions Know What They Are Doing, Part I

July 1, 2012

A discussion of ion behavior, reaction, and logical patterns under various conditions

Organic Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry

March 1, 2012

Ionization strategies and themes first developed in organic secondary ion mass spectrometry underlie many modern MS methods. Here's how it works.

Managing Mass Spectrometric Data

January 1, 2012

Aspects of integrated data management specifically for mass spectrometric data are explored, including spectral dataset size, laboratory documents, and requirements for archiving and sharing research data.

Detecting Ions in Mass Spectrometers with the Faraday Cup

November 1, 2011

The Faraday cup has been associated with mass spectrometry since the first instruments were assembled and continues to be used today. Here's how it works.

Consequences of Finite Ion Lifetimes in Mass Spectrometry

September 1, 2011

Consequences of Finite Ion Lifetimes in Mass Spectrometry As we construct more-complex instruments that process packets of ions in time and space, the issue of ion lifetimes is becoming more important. Features
