Abstract

The surface flatness of metal meshes in a deflector of particle beam mass spectrometer (PBMS) required ideally flat, and this can specify the particle trajectories which goes through the detector. In this research, charged particle current was measured using the different surface roughness deflectors. NaCl particles were generated monodispersed in its size by using differential mobility analyzer and the whole processes were followed the way calibrating PBMS. The results indicate that the mesh surface morphology in the deflector can affect to the particle size and the concentration errors, and sensitivity of PBMS.
