Microchannel plates (MCPs) are a class of electronic products consisting of millions of ultra-tiny channel electronic multipliers (СEMs) that are virtually identical in their characteristics. These devices are designed to work in vacuum for multichannel detection and amplification of spatially organized fluxes of charged particles and radiation.

A typical microchannel plate (MCP) is a glass disk consisting of a microchannel substrate and a solid rim border. A distinctive feature of MCPs and MCP-detectors is their high sensitivity to electron flux, ions, fast response resulting from the short (subnanosecond) electron transit time, and low dark count density.

Possible applications for MCPs include:

Baspik supplies a wide range of microchannel plates developed on the basis of proprietary technology to Russian and foreign markets. MCPs can also be custom made according to overall dimensions and other requirements of the customer.

The company has developed a range of open-type MCP detectors, vacuum ultraviolet and X-ray detectors. VTC Baspik also manufactures photon-counting PMTs which have the advantage of fast response and gain, increased surface area, low power consumption, and stable operation under the exposure to magnetic fields.

Another product line includes channeltrons which are reliable and effective detectors of positive and negative ions as well as electrons and photons. These products are used in mass spectrometry applications for fast informative analysis of chemical and biological compounds of any kind of complexity: from chemical elements to biopolymers. Application devices include quadrupole mass spectrometers and ion trap mass spectrometers.

The company produces various structures based on microchannel technology which consist of regularly packed microchannel arrays:
