8 May 1995 Developments in microchannel plate photomultipliers
Author Affiliations +
Microchannel plate photomultipliers (MCP-PMTs) are commonly used for single photon counting fluorescence decay measurements. Recent developments to improve the pulse height distribution are described. This enables the tube to be better matched to amplifiers, constant fraction discriminators and the ensuing electronics. Multi-anode tubes are also produced for multi-channel spectroscopy. Recent measurements of crosstalk in such tubes are presented and discussed.
