25 June 2017 - Mission Day: 7877 - DOY: 176

The CELIAS/CTOF sensor determines for every charged particle entering the sensor its mass, charge and energy. To show the ionic and elemental composition of the minor ions in the solar wind we plot a histogram of registered particles in mass and mass/charge, thus integrating over energy. Here a compilation of all PHA data for the time period between DOY 150 and DOY 199 of 1996 is shown. Clearly, the prominent minor ions carbon, oxygen, silicon and iron can be identified easily, with their respective charges. But even less abundant minor ions, e.g. Ne or Mg can be identified.
