The primary tasks associated with this contract were characterization and calibration of an RCA 8852 photomultiplier tube and a Varo image intensifier. The photomultiplier was characterized by its spectral response, absolute sensitivity, quantum efficiency, scan uniformity, dark current va temperature, pulse-height distribution, and noise figure. The Varo intensifier was characterized by its response as a function of bias voltage both in the dark and while irradiated by an LED light source. This final report discusses the tests we performed and compares them with data in the open literature and with data obtained by means of private communication from other researchers in the field. Some tests are also discussed in the bimonthly report covering the period from June 26, 1986 to August 25, 1986.
