a) Describe the differences in setup of linear and reflector TOF instruments.
b) Compared to the precursor ions, at what times do fragments from metastable dissociations reach the detector of a linear TOF analyzer?
c) What is the “trick” to make CID fragment ions comply with the comparatively small energy acceptance of a ReTOF used as TOF2 in TOF-TOF instruments?
