Abstract

Description of mathematical models for fast photo detectors based on microchannel plates (MCP) in three-dimensional formulation is given. The models include calculations of photoelectron collection efficiency in the gap photo cathode - MCP, gain factor of secondary electron cascades in the channels, the particle scattering in the gaps between the plates, taking into account the fringe fields and strong external magnetic fields. Comparisons of numerical and experimental data are given. The dependencies of major device parameters vs. of applied voltage, pore size, and magnetic field magnitude have been studied.
