The resolving power of a new high resolution one-dimensional ion detector array has been studied as a function of the microchannel plate electron multiplier (MCP) voltage and the detector pulse height discrimination level. Experimental data have been analysed to give a simple representation of both the resolving power and the region of stable operation of the array. The conditions necessary for high resolution and stable operation are explained and the implications of the results for future design of high resolution arrays are outlined.
