In this thesis the designing of high resolution Reaction Microscope (also known as COLTRIMS) to study dynamics of atoms and molecules is presented. COLTRIMS is a powerful technique that allows one to measure three dimensional momentum vectors of ions and electrons resulting from a single event of atomic or molecular fragmentation. The designing includes the trajectory simulation of charged particles to optimize the value of electric field. The designing of COLTRIMS and the trajectory simulation of ions and electrons is done by using commercial software SIMION 8.0. Further, a data analysis on Carbon monoxide molecule is done and the experimental results are compared with the simulated results. The experimental value matches quite well with simulation.
