Ionistation

The vapourised atoms/molecules are bombarded with high-energy electrons from the electron gun which cause them to lose an electron (sometimes two). They need to be ionised for the deflection stage.

Acceleration

The positive ions are acclerated so all ions are moving at the same speed by an electric field…
