A simple and fast transimpedance amplifier to couple a microchannel plate detector with an oscilloscope with a low impedance input has been developed. The amplifier protects the connected electronic equipment from destructive high voltage bursts. Examples of the detection of electrons are shown. The influence of the amplifier on pulse shape and intensity is discussed. © 2001 American Institute of Physics.
