Abstract : Research concerns an investigation of whether the single electron spectrum of certain photomultipliers (i.e. the pulse spectrum at the anode when the cathode was illuminated with single photons) is compatible with a Poissonian distribution of secondaries at each dynode, or not. It was concluded that when certain precautions are taken, the tubes investigated show spectra which are compatible with Poissonian distributions at the dynodes. (Author)
