Abstract

Performance characteristics of several new types of photomultiplier tubes (PMT) with microchannel plates (MCP) are presented in this paper. They are the MCP-PMT with 6-μm diam channels, MCP-PMT with an S-1 photocathode, and MCP-PMT with multi (discrete) anode and gatable MCP-PMT. Important requirements of an optical detector for picosecond lasers, fluorescence measurements, and material analysis are low light detectability, ultrafast time response, and versatile operation including modulation. The basic configuration, characteristics, and practical results of these detectors are described.
