Microchannel Plates (MCPs) - products of electronic engineering consist of millions of subminiature channel electron multipliers (CEMs) having almost identical characteristics. MCPs are intended for operating in vacuum as multichannel detectors and amplifiers of charged particles flows and radiations distributed in space. Due to unique properties, MCPs are used in many spheres of science and engineering.
