03:15 PM   Converging Ion Traps for Miniaturized Mass Spectrometers
03:50 PM   Deployable Remote Miniature Cylindrical Ion Trap Mass Spectrometer
04:25 PM   A Portable VUV Photo-Ionization Digital Ion Trap Mass Spectrometer for VOC Inspection

Miniature mass spectrometers are maturing and this symposium illustrates the state-of-the-art of the instrumentation and its applications. The symposium, a continuation of that at Pittcon 2012, will have two components.

There will be five speakers, as usual, each covering an aspect of Miniature Mass Spectrometers. The speakers will divide their time between a talk and demonstrations/questions.

A panel of experts (mostly last year’s speakers) will ask the first questions followed by questions from the floor. This format will allow opportunity for Q&A to an extent not usually seen at Pittcon.
