The interaction between the laser pulses and the beam molecules leads to photoionization forming cations and photoelectrons. These charged particles can be extracted and detected at the top or bottom of the chamber by the respective detector. Thus, the apparatus operates as either a TOF mass or photoelectron spectrometer but cannot be operated in coincidence. The mass spectrometer can also be operated as a reflectron TOF mass spectrometer although this mode of operation was not employed in this work.
