It is interesting to note that the term mass spectrography was coined by Aston along with the term used to describe the data recording of such instruments, the mass spectrum, ca. 1920; mass spectrometer was a term first used by two well-known early pioneers of mass spectrometry, William R. S. scientist) and Josef Heinvich Elizabeth Mattauch (Austrian physicist) ca. 1926. Thomson, Aston, and Dempster, and to a lesser extent Wien, are considered to be the founders of the field of mass spectrometry.
While at the Berlin Observatory, Goldstein reported that luminous rays in a discharge tube containing gases at low pressure traveled in straight lines from holes in a perforated metal disk used as a cathode. He called the rays Kanalstrahlen (canal rays) . In his book, Introduction to Mass Spectrometry Instrumentation and Techniques, John Roboz  calls the Goldstein paper the first mass spectrometry publication, even though the terms mass spectra and mass spectrometer were coined much later by Aston and Josef Heinvich Elizabeth Mattauch (Austrian physicist and designer of mass spectrometers) (Figure 1-5, lower left) ca.
S. President, formed the Consolidated Engineering Company (CEC) as the engineering and manufacturing subsidiary of the United Geophysical Company. This company, which had close ties with the California Institute of Technology and the petroleum industry, was founded to develop instrumentation to locate petroleum deposits by detecting hydrocarbon gases emanating from the ground. However, due to the ubiquitous nature of methane, such a device was not possible. This business venture would have died at this point except for the growing interest in using mass spectrometry to increase the speed of analyzing aviation gasoline, which was becoming increasingly important because of the nearing possibility of World War II .
