Paper Abstract

Shuttering characteristics of low impedance stripline geometry microchannel plate image intensifier tubes (MCPTs) with 50% transmissive nickel undercoated S-20 photocathodes are discussed. Iris-free shutter sequences with 50 to 75 micron resolution at optical gate times of 500ps to 2ns were measured for typical samples from two manufacturers. Shutter sequences clearly showing gate pulse propagation velocities for this MCPT design when externally driven by impedance matched circuitry are contrasted with non-directional sequences obtained from unmatched coupling of the gate pulse.
