In order to measure the characteristics of individual molecules, a mass spectrometer converts them to ions so that they can be moved about and manipulated by external electric and magnetic fields. The three essential functions of a mass spectrometer, and the associated components, are: A small sample is ionized, usually to cations by loss of an electron. The Ion Source. The ions are sorted and separated according to their mass and charge. The Mass Analyzer. The differentiated particles are then measured, and the results showed on an outline. The Detector. Since particles are exceptionally sensitive and brief, their development and control must be directed in a vacuum.
