"The Micro Sphere Plate: a novel electron multiplier"


[ Full Article | Questions & Answers | Help | IIB Home Page ]


The paper describes the Microsphere Plate (MSP), which is a compact electron multiplier. MSPs are used in vacuum systems for the detection of charged particles. Applications include particle-imaging, time-of-flight mass spectroscopy, particle counting, ion-beam monitoring, and electron microscopy. MSPs are also used for UV and X-ray imaging and in photomultipliers.
