H+P ion spectrometers represent a major improvement over the traditional Thomson parabola. Due to their high energy resolution of >10% combined with angular resolution, they provide high-accuracy estimates for conversion efficiencies from laser into particle energy. In addition, their significantly increased acceptance angle of 30° allows for much more realistic measurements.
Spectral information is provided for each charged ion species.
Multiple parameters can be investigated simultaneously, minimizing the impact of shot-to-shot fluctuations.

Special solutions


We offer specialized solutions for almost every application, including:

  • special housing geometries, in-chamber solutions

  • special mounting situations

  • UHV configurations


Please contact us with any special requirements you may have.



Our goal is to supply the perfect ion spectrometer for your application. We customize every spectrometer to exactly match the desired application.


This includes e.g.:

  • interfacing to experimental chambers

  • adaption to beam parameters

  • integration of customer-supplied detectors



  • laser ion acceleration

  • distinguish different acceleration mechanisms (Target Normal Sheath Acceleration TNSA, Radiation Pressure Acceleration RPA, Break-Out Afterburner BOA)



Our ion spectrometers are operated with state-of-the-art detectors:

  • high-sensitivity image plates

  • scintillators

  • MCPs

We will supply the detector that best fits your application

Care is taken to shield from direct and stray laser light and x-rays from the laser-plasma interaction.
