The design of a micro chamber quadrupole mass spectrometer (MCQMS) having a small total volume of only 20cm3, including Faraday cup ion detector and ion source, is described. This MCQMS can resist a vacuum baking temperature of 400500°C. The quadrupole elements with a hyperbolic surface are made of a ceramic material and coated with a thin metal layer. The quadrupole mass filter has a field radius of 3 mm and a length of 100 mm. Prototypes of this new MCQMS can detect a minimum partial pressure of 108Pa, have a peak width of ΔM=1 at 10% peak height from mass number 1 to 60, and show an excellent long-term stability. The new MCQMS is intended to be used in residual gas analyses of electron devices during a mutual pumping and baking process.
