Description

We present a linear type ion trap consisting of metal lines that are lithographically patterned onto two ceramic substrates. Trapping fields are realized by applying specific voltage potentials to each line. This arrangement allows miniaturization approaches that are immune to surface roughness issues and increased complexities of precision machining of electrode surfaces. We also present how these traps allow a thorough study of higher order multipoles and their effect on mass analyzer performance.
