MCP Detectors

Microchannel plate detectors are intended for the registration of corpuscular and electromagnetic radiation in scientific or industrial applications. The offered MCP detectors consist of one to three stacked MCPs, metal-ceramic fittings and metal anode based detector. The operating principle is based on the charged particles input current registration and further amplification.

A great number of detectors which input signal carries information about particle incidence place with a detector (so called Position-Sensitive Detectors) were developed for scientific purposes during the last ten years. Radiation particles, emitted by a source possess certain physical characteristics: energy, pulse width, flux level, polarization, etc. witch in certain way are distributed in space. Measurement of these characteristics and space distribution let us imagine the process produced by this radiation.
