The mass of a nucleus and its binding energy is one of the most fundamental nuclear properties. The masses of nuclides far from the valley of stability provide information on decay and reaction energies, as well as the nuclear structure that is preeminent for modeling stellar nucleosynthesis. The Time-Of-Flight mass measurement is one technique, which is well-known by its ability to measure the mass of very exotic nuclei. We have recently performed an experiment with the time-of-flight technique at RIBF for isotopes in the neutron-rich selenium region.We will present some preliminary results on background removal and trajectory reconstruction from this experiment. These steps are crucial to improving the reliability of the particle identification (PID) and online mass resolution during the experiment, which is 3.2X10−4.
