Generally, Wien filters are used for separating charged particle beams by velocity using orthogonally superimposed magnetic and electric fields.
The Wien filter features different entry and exit apertures for defining mass and charge state resolution and for collimating the beam.
They can be used for beam power loads of up to 30 W in broad pressure ranges, down to ultra-high vacuum conditions.
