The electric sector is a device constructed of curved, parallel metal plates that creates an electrostatic field perpendicular to the ion path. The sector (or analyzer) selects and focuses ions of the same kinetic energy. The electric sector does not separate ions according to mass or charge, and therefore is always used in conjunction with a magnetic analyzer, often in a double-focusing mass spectrometer. The electric sector is also sometimes called an electrostatic sector or electrostatic analyzer.
