21 Fourier Transform best for Our Signal? Harmonics make it hard to convert frequency to mass spectrum Better resolution possible?

22 Fourier Analysis - sinusoids Non-local Poorly describes discontinuities Wavelet Analysis Local Wavelet functions Gives time-frequency (delay – scale) information Try Mexican hat wavelet – a better match to our signal? Yes, but gives temporal rather than frequency information. Uncertainty means temporal resolution reduces frequency precision A Wavelet Transform?

32 Offset Comb t 0  /f0 /f0 S ( f ) significant only if recurring m, n values satisfy If  is irrational, no harmonics, i.e. contributions only when m=n

37 Advantages Over Fourier Transform Single harmonic per ion with high frequency precision Xe ions trapped for 100 ms FFT resolution 2600 Comb resolution Resolution currently limited by Ion lifetime (background gas pressure) Power supply stability

38 Advantages Over Fourier Transform Single harmonic per ion with high frequency precision Direct conversion to mass spectrum possible Phase information ultilised. Uncorrelated electronic noise suppressed FFT Comb

39 Advantages Over Fourier Transform FFT Comb Electronic Noise

40 Advantages Over Fourier Transform Single harmonic per ion with high frequency precision Direct conversion to mass spectrum possible Phase information ultilised. Uncorrelated electronic noise suppressed No limitations on data windowing

41 Fourier Windowing Some windows and their Fourier response Rectangle Blackman Spectral “leakage”

42 Comb Windowing No spectral leakage Better ion bunch separation at later times. Can weight asymmetrically

43 Optimum Conditions for Comb Sampling Narrower impulses yield Fewer fractional harmonics Higher frequency precision Well defined phase/offset Oscillation period ( 1/f 0 ) proportional to initial time offset (  /f 0 )  is constant for electrostatic ion optics Offset  - ideally avoids well factorised fractional values Multiple acquisition signals with different offsets enhance Spectral purity Signal to noise
