Abstract:

A measurement program in which a proton beam irradiates sensitive electro-optical sensors used in spacecraft systems has been prepared. The progress reported during this period includes device procurement and testing of photomultiplier tubes at the Los Alamos Meson Physics Facility. The micropulse structure of the LAMPF beam is ideal for measuring transient response of the photomultiplier tubes. Each tube was placed in the beam head on so that all parts were exposed and side on so that only the electron multiplier was irradiated.
