Time-Of-Flight Analyzers / Multiscalers

In Mass Spectrometry stop event pulses generated by ions arriving at the detector (typically a MCP) need to be precisely counted in the exact relation to their arrival time (TOF).  FAST ComTec has specialised in the design and manufacturing of instruments for ultra-fast pulse counting that meets this criterion. The models,  Series,  and  are one of the fastest commercially available fully digital multistop time digitizers (TOF) with up to four inputs. These models have no dead-time aft recording a stop pulse. 

For measurements requiring very high time precision over a larger time range an optional Rubidium Frequency Standard is available.

FAST ComTec: P7889

Pulse-width evaluation with 100 ps precision enables the user to calculate the area, the pulse height of the detector pulse but also if multiple events have occured - multiple events have a broader pulse width than single pulses. Then subsequent events detected at the stop inputs are recorded, each in a specific time bin corresponding to the time of arrival relative to the start pulse.

FAST ComTec: P7887

Then subsequent events detected at the stop inputs are recorded, each in a specific time bin corresponding to the time of arrival relative to the start pulse. The P7887 has been optimized for the best possible pulse-pair resolving while providing state-of-the-art time resolution available in digital designs.

FAST ComTec: MCS6A

Selection of data width per event in steps of 16bit allows for optimized FIFO and USB bandwidth usage For experiments requiring repetitive sweeps the spectral data obtained from each sweep can be summed in the PC enabling very high sweep repetition rates.

FAST ComTec: MPA4T

Coincidence data may contain the time of the event with 6.4 ns resolution, the sweep counter and counter data of up to three scalers, and two signal bits from auxiliary inputs. Three auxiliary inputs/outputs are available, either as inputs to start a coincidence time window or mark events, or as outputs to monitor selected signals.
