Modeling quadrupole mass analyzers with OmniTrak

Linear quadrupoles are widely used for ion mass spectrometry. They can separate ions by the ratio of mass number to charge number (M/Z) without a magnetic field, leading to compact, light and inexpensive systems. An assembly consists of a source of low-energy ions that enter an extended electrostatic¬† quadrupole. The voltage applied to the lens has […]

Building solids in MetaMesh

The programs Geometer and MetaMesh are used to build three-dimensional meshes for our multi-physics solution programs using constructive solid geometry. The user has the option to assemble objects from native models (e.g., spheres, cylinders, boxes, turnings,…) or to import complex shapes from SolidWorks and other 3D CAD programs. This article reviews how to make objects with […]
