3F-PIC / 1000 Series PIC

A specialist gas analysis system for fast event UHV studies

Hiden’s 3F PIC Series Quadrupoles are high precision triple filter analysers with digital detectors for ultimate sensitivity and time resolution in UHV TPD applications.

3F PIC Series Quadrupoles; specialist gas analysis system for fast event UHV studies


3F Series analysers include an optional UHV compatible mass filter shroud and low profile ion source for close positioning to the desorption surface.

Both analogue and digital inputs are provided for synchronous acquisition start and sample temperature data display alongside mass channel data.

Multiple ion detection mode allows more than 100 channels to be monitored simultaneously, each with a unique set of MS parameters. Choose species from the internal library or via NIST MS database with direct import/export to MASsoft Professional software.


  • Low profile ion source
  • Fast data acquisition
  • 500 data points per second
  • Wide dynamic range
  • 7 decade continuous log scale
  • Gating input for pulsed gas studies down to 100 nano seconds gating resolution
