Paper Abstract

Microsphere plate (MSP) is a new type of electron multiplier device. It is similar to the traditional microchannel plate (MCP) in dimensions and model of operation. Compared with the MCP electron multiplier, the MSP has some unique characteristics such as a high electron gain, without ion feedback and easy to be fabricated, thus it is widely used in the fields of imaging and detecting. However, there are some key technologies to fabricate a satisfied MSP. In this paper, the whole fabrication process of MSP was introduced and some of major processes such as the formation of glass beads, the sintering of MSP body, and the formation of dynode and electrodes were specially discussed. At the end of the paper, the optimal processed for the fabrication of MSP was given.
