Mass spectrometry is powerful tool for environmental and atmospheric chemistry analysis. Modern mass spectrometers demonstrate low detection limits, high sensitivity, and high resolving power. However, such high performance is not always enough to identify ambient ion clusters due to the clusters braking at the atmospheric pressure-to-vacuum interface of mass spectrometer. This study presents a high resolution ion mobility spectrometer-time-of-flight mass spectrometer (IMS-TOF) in the CLOUD experiment. This combination of orthogonal analytical techniques allows obtaining structural information in addition to mass-to-charge separation.
