Abstract
The source of an observed diffuse, time-varying structured background component in both bare and coated microchannel plates (MPCs) is investigated. The effects of MCP operating voltages, MCP gain characteristics, pressure, electrical contacts, and physical shielding on this background component are addressed. Various techniques to reduce this background are considered.
