Ion creation, ion focusing, ion/molecule reactions, ion separation, and ion detection in the open air in a small plastic device

Abstract

A method is presented in which ions are generated and manipulated in the ambient environment using polymeric electrodes produced with a consumer-grade 3D printer. The ability to focus, separate, react, and detect ions in the ambient environment is demonstrated and the data agree well with simulated ion behaviour.
