MCPs and MCP Detectors

For TOF measurement, Electron Micoscopy, Particle Imaging and Surface Analysis
available as setup to be mounted by customer or ready mounted in a high vacuum Flange or high vacuum Viewport or for replacement of bare MCPs.

MCP Structure

MCP image

A micro channel plate (MCP) is a lead glass plate including an array of electron multipliers with diameter of the tube in the range of 4-50 µm in parallel with thousands of other tubes. The length of a multiplier tube correspond to the thickness of the glass plate. The aspect ratio of the MCP is the length/diameter ratio of the channels. The channel axes are biased by a small angle (6° to 12°) to optimize the secondary electron emission in the channels. Under the influence of a supplied high voltage electrons are accelerated in the channels and hit the wall. A single electron is multiplied by a factor of 3-5. An MCP with an aspect ratio of 40:1 amplifies the electrons typical by a factor of more than 10000. So a single channel can be understood as a dynode continuous structure of a photomultiplier tube.

The GIDS GmbH offers MCPs for different applications in image and detection mode. It is possible to image electrons, positrons, protons, heavy ions, x-rays, XUV, VUV- and UV-radiation and measure position, cluster parameters, TOF and Ion- contribution depending on customers HV and readout system used.

MCP Detector CF Flange Assembly

MCP detector flange assembly

GIDS GmbH offers open MCP detectors with metal anode for different applications in counting mode. It is possible to count electrons, positrons, protons, heavy ions, x-rays, VUV- and UV-radiation and measure the TOF parameters. Due to the assembly in Ultra-High-Vacuum flanges (CF-Flange) it is possible to integrate the system in any analytic instrument which is based on the CF standard. On request it is also possible to integrate the systems on other flange standards like ISO-K, ASA or custom specific ones. The flanges are equipped with 3 integrated vacuum SHV feedthroughs to supply the high voltage to the MCP detector.

MCP Detector CF Viewport Assembly

MCP detector viewport assembly

GIDS GmbH offer open MCP detectors with phosphor screen for different applications in image mode. It is possible to image electrons, positrons, protons, heavy ions, x-rays, VUV- and UV-radiation and measure position and cluster parameters depending on the readout system used. Additional thread holes could be integrated from the non vacuum side to allow the mounting of a camera or another readout system. Due to the assembly in Ultra-High-Vacuum flange (CF-Viewport) it is possible to integrate the system in analytic instruments which are based on the CF standard. On request it is also possible to mount the MCP assembly on other viewport standards like ISO-K, ASA or custom specific ones. The viewports are equipped with 3 integrated vacuum SHV feedthroughs to supply the high voltage to the MCP detector.
