An analyte molecule was ionized using a femtosecond laser as the ionization source and was measured by a twin-type time-of-flight mass spectrometer with long (42 cm) and short (6.4 cm) flight tubes. The signal was measured using an analog signal digitizer and a time-correlated single ion counting system, and performance was evaluated by comparing data obtained from both instruments. The short mass spectrometer had a mass resolution of 450 and was used in the trace analysis of allergenic substances in a fragrance.
