Coincidence Measurements with the Manitoba Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometer
Observations of secondary ion multiplicity have been reported for high energy (~MeV/u) bombardment of large organic molecules [1,2] and CsI . The average number of secondary ions detected per primary projectile was >4, and some incident particles ejected more than 32 secondary ions. Significant correlations among ions desorbed from thiamine by 252Cf fission fragments have also been observed . Similar measurements with ~10 keV Cs+ ions have recently been made possible with a new data system  installed on the Manitoba time-of-flight mass spectrometer .
