Abstract

We have measured and compared the spatial fidelity of two types of microchannel plates over roughly half of their active area. Measurements of the spatial fidelity of curved-channel microchannel plates confirm earlier reports of large (>25 µm), irregular position offsets between the front and the back of the microchannel plates. Straight-pore microchannel plates used in a chevron configuration, on the other hand, showed almost no such position offsets (<4 µm).
