Mass Spectrometric Analysis of Solids with the High-Frequency Spark


Earlier work with the high-frequency vacuum spark in mass spectroscopy is reviewed briefly. A suitably designed system of monitoring the ion current produced by this type of source permits the application of the techniques of electrical detection in place of the method of direct photographic detection previously required for such an erratic source. This analytical method for solid samples is described and some illustrative analyses are presented.
