Abstract
The Phase I research will investigate the use of a piezoelectric pulsed electrospray ionization source (ESI) to implement Hadamard Transform (HT) signal multiplexing of ion mobility (IMS) instruments. The signal multiplexing advantage of the Hadamard transform method offers 50% instrument duty cycles and the pulsed ESI source enables up to 100% sample utilization. The performance improvements will be evaluated for trace explosive vapor analysis.
