|The IonPix camera generates a mass-resolved image in a single measurement cycle. The IonPix consists of a fully integrated, active pixel detector of the Medipix family and a chevron MCP. The IonPix has an arrey of 512 by 512 pixels. Each pixel acquires ion TOF and arrival position simultaneously. At the maximum time resolution of 10 ns, the counters can measure maximum ion TOFs of 118 μs.
The IonPix camera facilitates parallel detection of multiple molecular species and accommodates significantly more ion hits simultaneously. Therefore the IonPix Camera is especially suitable for large area, high-resolution imaging.
