The increasing awareness of the full range of detection capabilities of the microchannel plate-based detectors has led to the use of these electron multipliers in an ever increasing range of applications. Recent advances in the state of the art (ultra-small pores and high-output technology) have led to significant increases in dynamic range. This paper focuses on the design considerations for the optimal dynamic range in microchannel plate detectors. Factors such as size, gain, temperature, pulse height resolution and background noise are considered.
