microchannel plate

[¦mī·krō¦chan·əl ′plāt]
(electronics)
A plate that consists of extremely small cylinder-shaped electron multipliers mounted side by side, to provide image intensification factors as high as 100,000. Also known as channel plate multiplier.

(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.

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.
at present, only microchannel plate (mcp) pmts fulfill these requirements.
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.
