Abstract

Disclosed is an ion flow control device which requires relatively small potentials across the aperture electrodes in order to create high fringing fields- The device is comprised of a plurality of small apertures, having a radius no greater than the thickness of the dielectric material between the upper and lower electrodes, adapted to replace a single, relatively large aperture. One method for forming the apparatus may be to utilize a thin, dielectric membrane having a porsity of a predetermined magnitude, selectively closing the pores by depositing a material such as a metallic, conductive material which will form electrodes, and creating groups of pores in areas where apertures are required0
