Paper Abstract

At LLNL microchannel plate (MCP) detectors of x rays have been in use for several years. The voltage is applied by a coating on the MCP which needs to be thick enough that the propagation losses are small. To enhance the gain loss of a thick Au coating CsI is used to enhance the gain and quantum efficiency of the MCP. We have recently discovered that thick coatings of CsI (2 gm) in both the front and back side of the MCP (normal to bias angle) greatly increases the gain.
