Abstract:

Measurements and experiments directed to the improvement, especially with regard to stability, of the RCA 7029 photomultiplier are described. The development of improved stability testing procedures and the effect of varying tube design parameters are described. In addition to stability, excess low frequency noise was found to be a problem in the 7029. On the basis of these measurements a new tube type, designated the RCA C 70038 has been developed. This type has improved stability, less low frequency noise, and an envelope of improved mechanical design.
