Quantum Mass Spec | First Measurements

Quantum Mass Spectrometer | First Measurements

After many hours of optimisation and development work, the first set of spectroscopy measurements has been made using the Artemis mass spectrometer. This is a huge milestone, as these preliminary measurements inform us of what needs to come next in order for the instrument to be employed for trace element analysis. In the ongoing proof-of-principle ...
Fast Atoms

Quantum Mass Spectrometer | Fast Atoms

In our last article ‘Beam me Up’ we talked about how we have successfully steered a beam of ions around our new instrument. Here we discuss our next step, how we neutralise the ion beam to produce a beam of fast atoms. The Quantum Mass Spectrometer will offer highly selective separation of atoms with different ...
Beam Me Up

Quantum Mass Spectrometer | Beam me up!

We’re delighted to announce that we’ve reached a significant milestone on our journey to developing a new trace analysis technique. Our novel instrument exploits the interaction between a beam of ions that are accelerated through a vacuum and highly tuned lasers. Our team have successfully delivered the first ions to the end of the instrument. ...
Manchester Mass Spectrometry

Manchester, Home of Mass Spectrometry

Manchester has, throughout the ages, been at the forefront of research and development for the ever-evolving landscape of science and technology.  Through both the agricultural and industrial revolutions the contributions made by Manchester are too many to list, from the evolution of the textile industry right through to that of the mass spectrometry instrument manufacturers ...
elemental analysis and isotope analysis

A Brief History of Elemental Analysis

Elemental analysis by definition covers the whole periodic table and includes both qualitative and quantitative analysis of samples covering a wide range of concentrations. Organic elemental analysis may also be determined for a range of small or large molecule applications. It is possible to analyse a multi-component mixture of compounds using chromatographic techniques.  If the ...
