By delivering concentrated information in three different volumes, the editors of the Practical Aspects of Ion Trap Mass Spectrometry mini-series present in-depth reviews on mainstream developments in each active and popular area. Contributing authors provide concise reports illustrating successful approaches to difficult analytical problems across the basic scientific disciplines.

Ion Trap Instrumentation, the second volume in the series, conveys an appreciation of the ion trap as a versatile instrument which is used successfully in research and in applications, often in tandem with other instruments or components, such as external ion sources and lasers.

The book begins with a discussion of high resolution mass spectrometry and mass measurement accuracy. It then demonstrates that trajectories of high kinetic energy ions can be controlled so that such ions are confined. It provides applications of lasers to the study of trapped ions the laser photodissociation of gaseous ions confined within the ion trap. The book concludes with physics applications of the ion trap, in particular, the Penning trap and the Paul trap.
