Abstract:

Multiplier phototubes used in scintillation counting show shifts in gain when subjected to high counting rates. The nature of these shifts varies significantly from tube to tube. The gain shift characteristic of certain phototubes was examined for use in gamma-ray scintillation spectrometry. Samples of Dumont, RCA, EMI, and CBS phototubes were evaluated. Author
