Abstract
We have determined that the modulation transfer function (MTF) of a microchannel plate intensifier (MCPI) is a much stronger function of the electric focusing field in the screen region than it is in the cathode region. For approximately equal percentage increases in the electric fields, the screen MTF improves about ten times faster than the cathode MTF at 15 1p/mm. Testing was done on three ITT F4111 MCPIs using a computer-controlled EG&G Gamma Scientific C-11 Spatial Scanning System and an impulse line measuring technique with a three-micron slit target contacting the fiber-optic input of the tube. The MTF was calculated using the Fast Fourier Transform algorithm.
