This work concerns the development, fabrication and testing of novel 2D nanoESI emitter tips. The design of the emitter tips follows a fountain pen model; fabrication relies on the use of the negative photoresist SU-8. MS tests were carried out on an ion trap mass spectrometer; the tests showed the reliability of these micronib sources and comparable performances to standard commercial needle-like sources.
