抄録

A Knudsen-cell-based quadrupole mass analyzer has been developed for the analysis of a small amount of RI sample. To achieve a high signal/noise ratio, a continuous dynode electron multiplier was installed at the end of the mass filter and was operated in a pulse counting mode. Furthermore, the cylindrical shape molecular trap was set around the mass analyzer to reach high degree of vacuum and to reduce the RI contamination area in the apparatus.<BR>The isotope ratio of <SUP>135</SUP>Cs/<SUP>137</SUP>Cs samples has been measured to demonstrate the performance of the mass analyzer. Taking the advantage of the Knudsen-cell's precise controllability over temperature, the contribution of the isobar <SUP>137</SUP>Ba was successfully removed in the mass spectrum of cesium. With samples containing about 0.3μg <SUP>137</SUP>Cs and almost the same amount of <SUP>135</SUP>Cs, the isotope ratio measurement with the total error of 3% has been achieved. The molecular trap was also shown to be effective to reduce the contamination area in the apparatus.
