Paper Abstract

A microchannel plate(MCP) consists of a parallel array of individual electron multiplier channels of microscopic glass in diameter(10-40um). It is a kind of ideal two-dimensional electron multiplier. However, if the ordinary MCP is used for a time or baked, its electron gain will be decreased dramatically and the reliable operating time will be shortened. Therefore, with the increase of the requirement for using MCP, it becomes a pratical problem to be urgently solved that MCP gain stabillity is improved and the service life is extended.
