An FTICR Spectrometer — Design Philosophy and Practical Realisation
Many papers have appeared in the literature describing the theoretical background to Fourier Transform Ion Cyclotron Resonance Mass Spectrometry (FTICR) and presenting block diagrams for such spectrometers [1–6]. This paper will endeavour to draw attention to some of the practical difficulties which must be solved by constructors, and to describe in detail how the most serious problems have been solved in the building of the Amsterdam FTICR instrument.
