Mass Resolution Study in the Cylindrical Ion Trap by Using Three-Point One Block Method

Sarkhosh Seddighi Chaharborj and Yousof Gheisari

Motion equations in cylindrical ion trap (CIT) coupled in u and v (respective r and z), and thus, can only be treated as a rough approximation. Hence, studies on cylindrical ion trap (CIT) equations are more complicated and involved. Therefore, a three point one block method (3POBM) of Adams Moulton type is presented to study a cylindrical ion trap (CIT) motion equations. The advantage of the three point one block method (3POBM) is to estimate the approximate solutions directly at three points simultaneously. Numerical results from three point one block method (3POBM) will compare with fifth order Runge-Kutta method (RKM5). The proposed three points one block method has a potential application to solve complicated linear and nonlinear equations of the charge particle confinement in the cylindrical field especially in fine tuning accelerators, and generally speaking, in physics of high energy. The physical properties of the confined ions in the r and z axises are illustrated and the fractional mass resolutions m/?m of the confined ions in the first stability region was analyzed by the fifth order Runge-Kutta method (RKM5) and three points one block method (3POBM).
