Customer inquiry:

We are mounting an ion trap experiment for Calcium ions. We need MCP's for th measurement of ion's time of flight. We need a set of two MCP's mounted in chevron configuration with an active diameter of about 20 mm. I am interested by The systems you provide with the anode for the collection of the signal. Can you please tell us the price of the system having the carachteristics I specified.
We need also a power supply and a voltage divider to polarize the MCP's and keep the 100 V you say it must be left between the MCP's and the anode.
We need a fast amplifier for the MCP's
We are also interested by a multi channel scaler computer card to be used with the MCP's to get the TOF and to be used with a photomultiplier tube to count photons.

For the creation of Calcium ions, the use of a pulsed laser is an option (for laser ablation/Ionization). Can you please tell us if you can provide such a laser. We need only 10^5 to 10^6 ions per second and we don't want to go for a complicated and expansive laser system. May be you have a diode based laser for that.
