Overview of a Detector System

The ions separated by the quadrupole mass filter are detected by the detector, which converts ions to electrons (electric current). Then the current is processed by an electric circuit. The most popular detector is an electron multiplier that multiplies the number of electrons emitted from the surface by impingement of ions to increase the signal intensity.
