The F6492 long-scale microchannel plate has a configuration that makes simultaneous multielement measurements possible. The MC¥is sensitive to ions, electrons, UV, soft x-rays, and high-energy particles for applications including short-wavelength spectrometry. The effective area is 127 ¥ 4 mm, channel diameter is 12 µm, and the pitch of the channels is 15 µm. At the maximum supply voltage of 1 kV, the MC¥delivers at least 104 current gain and has a maximum dark current of 5 ¥ 10-13 A/cm2.
