MARA (Mass Analysing Recoil Apparatus)


MARA is a vacuum mode recoil separator with the ion-optical configuration QQQEDMD. MARA complements the capabilities of the RITU gas-filled recoil separator and extends the region of accessible nuclei down to lighter masses, and to cases where mass resolving power is required to select the nuclei of interest. The mass resolving power is of the order of 1/350 (FWHM).
