PHOTONIS USA (Sturbridge, MA) has
been awarded a patent for the manufacture
of resistive glass tubes with non-linear
gradient electrical resistance changes. The
patented process creates a solid-piece reflectron
lens. Reflectron lenses are used in Timeof-
Flight (TOF) mass spectrometers to create
an electrostatic field to alter ion flow, providing for a longer flight path
and greater resolution. A reflectron lens made with resistive glass provides
an assembly replacement for a stacked ring assembly yet provides
the same ability to alter ion flow.
