Abstract: The cylindrical ion trap (CIT) is made up of two planar endcap electrodes and a cylindrical ring electrode. The investigation of simpler geometries like CIT has been started off in recent years with a view towards miniaturization. As a step towards this, numerical studies on CITs were carried out in our laboratory. Here in this study, our motive is to characterize a CIT through experiments. We have designed a mass spectrometer where a CIT is used as the mass analyzer. The trap performance was observed by varying six parameters associated with our experiment. The parameters are (1) the ionization voltage, (2) the ramp time, (3) the ionization time, (4) the cooling time, (5) the dead time and (6) the bias voltage applied across the filaments. All the experiments have been performed in the mass selective boundary ejection mode.
