Paper Abstract

A microchannel plate (MCP) framing camera is simulated by using the Monte Carlo method. Considering that the laser pulse width has effect on the experimental exposure time, we simulate the experimental exposure time varying with the laser pulse width. The gain characteristics of the MCP framing camera are simulated while the MCP is applied with very short electrical gating pulses. A new method is presented using a nongain MCP instead of a gain MCP.
