Recent Developments in Ultra-High Speed and Large Area Photomultiplier Tubes presented at the 1st EPS Conference on Plasma Diagnostics.

Photek has been working with AWE to provide a photomultiplier (PMT) solution for fusion diagnostics. By using microchannel plates (MCP) as the gain medium, the time response of the PMTs can be as fast as 100 ps FWHM.
