Drift Mode

Drift mode refers to a mode of operation in which the ion beam energy remains unchanged after the analysis magnet. The following schematic below shows an example and the table on the right indicates the energy of the beam at various points along the beam line designated by letters A-G   Note all points are referenced to the source or point A.

Drift Mode
 

Point Beam Energy
A 0 keV
B 10 keV
C 25 keV
D 20 keV
E 20 keV
F 20 keV
G 20 keV
