Abstract:

We have developed and activated a facility for steady-state x-ray characterization of microchannel plates, framing cameras, and related components. We have completed a vacuum system with a Manson-type x-ray source. This required experience with and upgrading of the source in order to make it routinely operable. At this time we are able to operate it routinely and we have written manuals for its operation and maintenance by students working in our laboratory environment. The system includes an absolutely calibrated vacuum photodiode for x-ray flux measurements.
