Since its development less than ten years ago, the technique of Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance (FTICR) mass spectrometry [1] has been applied in a number of laboratories and has shown great promise for advances in several fields of analytical and physical chemistry. Developments in FTICR theory [2–5] enhancements of the technique based in part on theoretical concepts [6–9] and some limited applications [9–13] have appeared. All of the recently published work has involved FTICR spectrometers utilizing relatively expensive minicomputers developed originally for use in Fourier transform nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometry.
