Abstract

We studied the dynamic properties of ion guiding through nanocapillaries in insulating polyethylene terephthalate (PET). The angular distribution of the transmitted ions was measured as a function of time. The temporal evolution of the angular transmission profiles was acquired for the capillary diameters of 200 and 400 nm. The tilt angle was varied from 0° to 6.5°. The transmission profiles exhibit significant changes in position as time varies. This observation is explained by the formation of temporary charge patches produced in the interior of the capillary besides the primary charge patch created in the entrance region.
