Abstract

In order to increase the ion-detection efficiency of the pressure measurement method using nonresonant multiphoton ionization, an ion-detection head was improved. Using this head, pressure measurements were carried out for H2 and Xe in the extreme high vacuum region. As a result, for H2, by optimizing an incident ion energy, the efficiency increased by a factor of about 2.5. For Xe, without optimizing the incident ion energy, it increased by a factor of about 1.5.
