Paper Abstract

Observations of afteremission in microchannel plate (MCP) detectors illuminated by low-energy ions or soft X-ray are reported. Possible mechanisms of delayed pulse generation in lead glass microchannel plate multipliers are discussed with reference to observations with MCPs of different chemical compositions. The findings of the study are discussed in relation to the use of MPC detectors in space astronomy and other fields.
