The linear position of lines (images of the entrance slit) on the photoplate is indicative of specific m / z ions separated by the magnetic field. This approach was used for many years because it provided both multielement detection and the high sensitivity achieved by timeintegrated measurements. However, this is a cumbersome approach because it requires carefully controlled photographic development techniques and tedious interpretation processing. A second mode of operation involves the use of an exit slit with an ion collector positioned immediately behind it to measure the intensity of the isolated ion beam.

This ratio defines the ability to measure low concentration analytes in the presence of high concentration analytes or matrix components. The numerically larger this ratio, the better the performance of the quadrupole mass spectrometer. The abundance sensitivity in conjunction with resolution establishes the operating performance of the quadrupole mass spectrometer for quantitative analysis purposes. The radius of curvature of the deflection is dependent on both the m / z of the ion and the strength of the applied magnetic field.

In addition, the process of ion beam divergence when the ion density is relatively high is called the space charge effect. The light ions are deflected more than the heavy ions; which adds an additional factor in optimizing the ion lens setting for analyte elements of different masses. The ultimate result is that even small changes in the total ion current caused by the addition of sample matrix elements can change the fraction of analyte ions that passes through the lenses. The masses of both the analyte element and the matrix are important.
