Technology

This technology utilizes signal processing to adjust the operational conditions of quadrupole mass filters in order to improve their performance. By operating quadrupoles in high-order stability regions, peak widths are sharpened and the mass spectrum is easier to resolve despite defects caused during the manufacturing process.  Moreover, using drive signal processing, it is possible to create new stability boundaries with high resolution around operating conditions where there are no higher-order resonances.
