Sammanfattning (abstract):
Low ionization yields in time of flight secondary ion mass spectrometry (ToF-SIMS) particularly from single cells and tissues are proving to be a significant limitation in allowing this technique to reach its full potential. A number of approaches including embedding the sample in water or spraying water above sample surface has shown great prospective for increasing the ionization yield by a factor of 10 to 100 through proton mediated' reaction. Based on this hypothesis, a water cluster primary ion source has been developed in collaboration with Ionoptika Ltd to generate giant water cluster ions (H2O)(n)(+) (n=1-10000) using a similar supersonic jet expansion methodology as for argon cluster beams. The ion yields of arginine, cholesterol, angiotensin II and a lipid mix have been measured under static and high ion dose conditions using (H2O)(5000)(+), (H2O)(3000)(+), Ar-3000(+) and C-60(+) primary ion beams at 20keV. An enhancement in yields up to a factor of around 4 is observed under water cluster impact, in comparison with C-60(+) at 1x10(11)ions/cm(2) ion dose, whereas this increases by around 10-50 times at high ion dose conditions.
