Claim of US Patent No. 9,857,336

1. An ion mobility spectrometer, comprising:
a drift tube;
a plurality of sensors arranged at one end of the drift tube, that provide signals corresponding to ions impinging on the
sensors; and

a multi-channel data acquisition system, coupled to each of the sensors, that compensates for delays experienced by ions that
are farther from a main axis of drift tube prior to combining the signals from the sensors.
