2002) modelled the flow distribution in a microchannel plate using an approximate pressure drop model.
However, the tube loses resolution as the voltage to the microchannel plate is reduced in response to a bright scene.

MicroChannel Plate Detector, Hamamatsu F2226-24P136 with a P46 phosphor screen or acceptable alternate meeting the following minimum specifications:
A low-profile assembly, combining a highly sensitive microchannel plate and electro-optically isolated output signal, encloses the detector.
Furthermore, the system uses a four-segment microchannel plate (MCP) detector that provides topographic imaging along two orthogonal directions to enhance surface detail.
The detector is enclosed in a low profile assembly combining a highly sensitive Microchannel Plate and electro-optically isolated output signal.
For decades, microchannel plate performance has improved only marginally due to a manufacturing process which has been constrained by available materials and processes," explains Neal Sullivan, CTO of Arradiance.
There will be two spectroscopy systems: (a) delay-line (DL) microchannel plate (MCP) photomultiplier (PMT) attached to a polychromator and (b) quadrant-anode (QA) MCP-PMT attached to a low-background microscope, where DL- and QA-MCP-PMT are linear and imaging detectors of 10 ps time resolution.
The goal of the program is to develop new imaging and sensor technology using Arradiance's proprietary GEM thin film technologies to replace decades-old microchannel plate (MCP) technology currently used in space imaging and sensing applications.
announced today the demonstration of the world's highest gain microchannel plate, with measured gain reaching 1 million at selected operating parameters.
ITT's ENVG (D) is a leap in technology as it replaces the standard image intensification tube with a new digital sensor, the MicroChannel Plate Complementary Metal-Oxide Semiconductor (MCPCMOS).
