mass spectrometer (operating on the linear accelerator principle)

A mass spectrometer in which the ions to be separated absorb maximum energy through the effect of alternating electric fields which are parallel to the path of the ions. These ions are then separated from other ions with different mass/charge by an additional electric field.
