    A photon counting photomultiplier tube (PMT) for UV spectral range has been designed exhibiting a unique value of peak-to-valley ratio

    Photon detector is one of the main types of detectors in high-energy and nuclear physics. Photon counting is a fundamental method for the acquisition of maximum information from the light signal. This method is widely used for the detection of very weak light signals. PMTs with discrete dynodes, MCP-PMTs, avalanche diodes, hybrid PMTs are usually used as photon counting detectors. As compared to the other types of detectors MCP-PMT have the advantage of high gain and fast response, larger active area, low power consumption, stable operation under exposure to magnetic fields..
