Spherical microchannel plates

Spherical microchannel plates (S MCPs) are highly suitable for vacuum ultraviolet spectroscopy and soft X-ray focusing. In order to optimize detection efficiency the focal surface can be individually designed.


  • Biology
  • Medicine – as part of portable X-ray tube as well as diagnostic equipment for early detection of cancer
  • Mining operations
  • Analysis of critical large-scale structures and structures without disturbance of their relationships (bridges, pipelines, transportation, building structures, lifting mechanisms, lifting-transport mechanisms, subway etc.)
  • Powder products research

Application devices:

  • spectroscope
  • X-ray diffractometers
  • XFS
  • etc
