IDS 2030 Charged Particle Detector

The IDS 2030 is a true charge detector and is independent of particle energy (thermal to keV), particle mass, and incident angle.
Designed for positive charge detection the detector will also detect negative ions and electrons.
The ion detector functions pressure independent over at least a range of 9 decades (1 µTorr to 1 kTorr).
The detector allows a read-out speed from 0.2 frames per second (fps) up to 360 fps.
Spectra acquisition can be synchronized with an ionization using a trigger pulse.
High Density Detector Array featuring 2126 active pixels over 51 mm. With a pixel width of 21 µm and a height of 1500 µm the detector features an effective area of 88%.
Typical applications are in Mass Spectrometry, Ion Mobility Spectrometry, beam profiling, and ion source characterization.
The IonCCD is mounted on ceramic printed circuit board and delivered in an aluminum enclosure for easy mounting and protection.
The IDS 2030 is CE certified (FCC, RoHS, WEEE).

The IDS 2030 is a standalone detector system based on the IonCCD. The IonCCD operates as any CCD employing the fill-and-spill method with the difference of photo-sensitive material is replaced by a conductive material. Charge-coupled devices (CCD) offer a fine detector pitch and contain all the electronic elements necessary to transfer charge with high efficiency and very little noise. Replacing the photosensitive area of a standard CCD with a MOS capacitor results in an ion sensitive detector array (IonCCD). The current IonCCD allows data rates of up to 360 Hz.
The IonCCD is a very robust device operating in different environments, from high vacuum to atmospheric pressure and beyond. The IonCCD detector is already used in many applications: Spatially resolved detection of keV ions as ion detector for non-scanning Sector-Field Mass Spectrometers or a Distance-of-Flight mass spectrometer. Detection of electrons in electron spectroscopy, for non-scanning electron-energy analyzers such as PMA and CMA, and as Pixelated Anode for MCP read out. Detection of highly charged micro-droplets in atmospheric soft-ionization and diagnostic tool for Atmospheric Pressure Ionization sources such as ESI, Nano-Spray, DESI. Detection of thermal ions at atmospheric pressure. Ion swarm imaging for drift tube Ion Mobility Spectrometers, diagnostic and development of DTIMS systems and their respective pulsing gates and ion sources. Detector for dispersive (non-scanning) IMS instruments such as DMA, CFIMS and AIMS.
Detection of hyper-thermal ions for ion beam diagnostics for ion funnels, collisional and resolving quadrupoles. Beam size control feedback for soft-landing based technologies used in ion-surface chemistry and surface modification. Ion scattering experiments, detector for integrated angular distributions in ion-molecule and ion-surface experiments
