Ultra-Low Energy Isotope Spectrometer
To measure ion fluxes over the charge range from He to Ni
Z ranging from 2 to 28. Time-of-flight (TOF) mass spectrometer which identifies incident ion mass and energy by simultaneously measuring the time-of-flight and the residual kinetic energy of particles which enter the telescope cone and stop in one of six detectors in the telescope. Energy range: 0.02-10 MeV/n.
