Conference paper


We have recently constructed the tandem mass spectrometer set-up BESTOF (consisting of a B-sector field combined with an E-sector field, a Surface and a Time Of Flight mass spectrometer) which allows the investigation of ion/surface reactions with high primary mass and energy resolution. Using BESTOF we have extended previous investigations from molecular projectile ions to cluster ions. In particular, we have studied here surface induced dissociation (SID) and surface induced reactions (SIR) of acetone dimer ions upon impact on a hydrocarbon covered stainless steel surface as a function of incident collision energy up to about 80 eV.
