Large area (20×20 cm 2) sealed tube detectors using novel borosilicate glass microchannel plates, with bialkali photocathodes and strip-line readouts are being developed for Cherenkov light s based on conventional sealed tubes with alumina brazed body construction and hot indium seals have been by:   1.

Introduction. In recent years we have implemented a variety of delay line image readout systems for high-resolution, large format, photon-counting microchannel plate (MCP) detectors in space instrumentation [1–3].The cross-strip (XS) anode concept (Fig. 1) [4,5] employs many of the physical design techniques used for the delay line anodes.

However, the XS anode works by charge division Cited by:   Tremsin AS, Siegmund OHW, Vallerga JV, Hull JS () Novel high resolution readout for UV and X-ray photon counting detectors with microchannel plates. Proc SPIE – Google ScholarCited by: 9.
