FIG. 2.

Picture of a plastic model (top) and of the prototype electrodes of the ESA. The 6-in.-long scales give an idea of the size.

Image of FIG. 3.
FIG. 3.

Relation between the impact location on the MCP of the start electrons and the azimuthal angle corresponding to the energy-per-charge.

Image of FIG. 4.
FIG. 4.

Voltage (Energy)—angle response at incident azimuth of 210°. The relative transmission is color-coded and normalized to a maximum of 100.

Image of FIG. 5.
FIG. 5.

Analyzer “constant” as a function of azimuth angle on the imaging MCP. The measurements (black dots) are compared with the results from electro-optics simulations (orange) and with an approximation based on an analytical derivation (green). The agreement between the measurements and the approximations is better if both curves are multiplied by 1.1 (blue and red).
