We present a design combining a velocity map imaging electron spectrometer with a reflectron mass spectrometer. Since the two spectrometer sides have different intrinsic requirements for the electric field in the central region, a large number of electrodes and a reflectron-geometry of the mass spectrometer were employed to achieve simultaneous high resolutions. Together with femtosecond and attosecond pump-probe methods it will enable studies of ultrafast dynamics in large molecular systems.
