Fourier Transform Mass Spectrometry for High Mass Applications
Fourier transform mass spectrometry (FTMS) has enormous potential as an analytical mass spectrometry, especially for the analysis of large molecules [1,2,3]. The potential advantages of this instrument over magnetic sector and time-of-flight instruments are the available mass range and ultra-high mass resolution. In addition, as with the time-of-flight system, the FTMS experiment utilizes a pulsed, low duty cycle ionization source which should result in greater sensitivity than can be obtained with CW ionization sources.
