Paper Abstract

We report upon our continued investigation of a chemical treatment method for improving the quantum detection efficiency and gain of photon counting microchannel plate detectors for vacuum UV and soft x-radiation. The process improved MCP quantum detection efficiency for approximately 100-1200 angstrom radiation by a factor of 1.5-2. The performance results of DIP treated microchannel plates are summarized.
