Abstract

We report on a newly developed detector based on a Superconducting-Phase-Transition Thermometer which is used in a Time-of-flight mass spectrometer for heavy molecules. It exhibits a sensitive area of 3.0×3.0 mm2 and a time resolution of approximately 1.1 μs. First measurements with our setup on heavy proteins up to 150,000 amu are presented.
