(2002) modelled the flow distribution in a microchannel plate
using an approximate pressure drop model.
Both measures are provided by adjusting the voltage level of the microchannel plate
. However, the tube loses resolution as the voltage to the microchannel plate
is reduced in response to a bright scene.

As seen above, this barrier used in conventional Gen III tubes, prevents damage to the photocathode coating by shielding it from ions backscattered from the microchannel plate
After the researchers determined that reduced magnification could provide higher resolution, they replaced the system's original electron multiplier with a dual microchannel plate
assembly for imaging.
In addition to its 10-kV post acceleration, it features the Extended Dynamic Range small-pore, microchannel plates
. A low-profile assembly, combining a highly sensitive microchannel plate
and electro-optically isolated output signal, encloses the detector.
