accelerating voltage (high voltage, Math - title) scan
in mass spectrometry
This is an alternative method of producing a momentum (mass) spectrum in magnetic deflection instruments by varying the accelerating voltage. This scan can also be used, in conjunction with a fixed radial electric field, to produce an ion kinetic energy spectrum.
