Novel timing application using microchannel plate with phosphor screen
- 17 Downloads
A signal tapping circuit has been designed to derive the fast timing signal from the Chevron type, 2 stage MCP having phosphor screen as a readout device. Using this, the timing property of the MCP-BaF2 system has been studied using the digital storage oscilloscope in which a timing resolution of ~ 500 ps has been obtained. The applicability of MCP with phosphor screen configuration for timing measurements has been demonstrated.
