Title: Novel MCP-Based Electron Source Studies

Abstract

Microchannel plates (MCPs) were recently proposed as novel type of cathodes for electron guns [1], suitable for applications in design of electron lenses. We report results of the first systematic study of microchannel plate based photomultiplier time response and maximum cur-rent density tests using different sources of light pulses. The Burle 85011-501 MCP-PMT is found to have good time response properties being capable of producing na-nosecond long pulses with modest maximum current density and performance strongly dependent on magnetic field strength.
