Development of a versatile ion trap based experimental station for the study of biomolecular ions — •Tim Michaelsen, Sunil Kumar, Thorsten Best, and Roland Wester — Institut f. Ionenphysik und Angewandte Physik, Universität Innsbruck

Intramolecular vibrational relaxation of biomolecules upon UV excitation is the key process determining their stability against radiation damage[1]. However, the details of the mechanism behind this process are still poorly understood.

We are currently developing a versatile ion trap based experimental station which will allow us to examine this process in detail. The biomolecular ions are produced in an electrospray ion source[2] with an ion-funnel interface[3], which has already been implemented and characterized. The ions are then guided by a linear quadrupole and mass selected by a second quadrupole. They will be stored and cooled down to 4K in a unique 16-pole ion trap, which is designed to allow for laser irradiation of ions normal to the trap axis similar to our wire-based octupole ion trap[4]. The ions extracted from the ion trap are then analyzed using a reflectron-based time-of-flight mass spectrometer. To investigate the details of the intermolecular vibrational relaxation of chromophore-based molecules, we will choose the fluorescent protein chromophore anion as a model system.
