Quantitative information in decay curves obtained with a pulsed ion mobility spectrometer

Abstract

Ion mobility spectrometry (IMS) is well known for its very high sensitivity, and thus IMS spectra are commonly used in the identification of trace gases. Extracting quantitative information from IMS spectra is, in contrast, difficult, especially regarding the reproducibility due to the nature of the processes involved in the measurement of the spectra. Here we present data extracted from signal decay curves obtained with a pulsed IMS, which can support the determination of substance concentrations in the lower ppb range with good stability.
