Photon counting with small pore microchannel plates

By Adrian Martindale, J. S. Lapington and G. W. Fraser


We describe the operation of microchannel plates (MCPs) with 3.2 micrometre diameter channels as photon counting detectors of soft X-rays. Gain and temporal resolution measurements are compared with theoretical scaling laws for channel diameter. A minimum pulse width of 264 ps is observed for a two stage multiplier at a total bias voltage of ~1930 V
