Structure of Ion Source

Structure of Ion Source

This is a typical ion source for EI (Electron Ionization). EI is the most common ionization method used in GC/MS Ions are produced in the ion source. Neutral molecules are hit by the electrons, emitted from the heated filament, to be ionized. Produced ions are electrically pushed out from the ion source by the positive voltage on the repeller electrode.
