The Time-of-Flight Aerosol Mass Spectrometer (ToF-AMS) is a second generation instrument for the real-time measurement of size-resolved aerosol chemical composition. It is based on the highly successful design of the first generation quadrupole-based system, the Q-AMS . The ToF-AMS differs from the Q-AMS in the replacement of the quadrupole mass filter, with a custom designed Tofwerk time-of-flight mass Spectrometer.
The ToF-AMS is developed and built by Aerodyne Research, in collaboration with Tofwerk the Jimenez Group at the University of Colorado, the Borrmann Group at the Max Planck Institute for Chemistry, and the Coe Group at the University of Manchester.
