accelerating voltage scan (high voltage scan), \(\text{V}\)

in mass spectrometry
This is an alternative method of producing a @M04007@ (mass) spectrum in magnetic deflection instruments by varying the accelerating voltage. This scan can also be used, in conjunction with a fixed radial electric field, to produce an @I03218@.
