Abstract

We have started the development of a new time-of-flight mass spectrometer equipped with Nb/Al superconducting-tunnel-junction detectors. Metal cluster ions were employed to investigate the properties of the superconducting ion detectors. In addition to mass spectroscopy with wide mass range, we have performed impact energy measurement, which enables charge-state discrimination.
