Problem 9.3

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?
