Market: Those involved in laboratory chemical analysis, atmospheric chemistry, and atomic and molecular physics. Long regarded as the standard introduction to the field, Quadrupole Mass Spectrometry and Its Applications provides today's engineers and scientists with an authoritative, wide-ranging overview of the development and uses of quadrupoles. Beginning with the basic operating principles of quadrupole devices, the book moves from general explanations of the actions of radio-frequency fields to descriptions of their utilization in quadrupole mass filters, monopoles, three-dimensional quadrupole ion traps, and various time-of -flight spectrometers. A concluding series of chapters examines fundamental applications of quadrupoles in atomic and subatomic physics, gas chromatography, upper atmospheric research, medicine, and environmental studies.
