Abstract

A retarding-potential-energy analyzer with mass spectrometer has been developed to investigate the velocity (energy) distribution of an ion swarm in a drift tube. The energy distributions of Cs** plus ions in Ar are measured in a steady state ion stream over the range of E/N from 85 to 480 Td at N between 3. 8 multiplied by 10**1**5 and 4. 8 multiplied by 10**1**6cm** minus **3 at T//g equals 300 K. The measured distributions at the axis of the velocity space are in good agreement with the distorted shift Maxwellian for 85 APP 1STH E/N APP 1STH 330 Td, though the skewness in the distribution is observed at E/N equals 480 Td. The drift velocity and the longitudinal diffusion coefficient, derived from the mean value and the variance of the distribution, agree well with those from the conventional measurements of the arrival-time spectrum in the drift tube experiments.
