Useful Information

RCA was the original manufacturer of photomultiplier tubes:

  • First demonstration of working PM: early 1934 (single stage design)
  • Multistage conceived by inventor J. Slepian in 1919
  • September 1934, RCA's Vladimir Zworykin was shown the first multiple-dynode photomultiplier, achieving gains of 1000x or more when demonstrated in June 1934
  • First electrostatic PMs in 1937
  • first mass-produced photomultiplier, the Type 931

In the late 1980s, RCA was acquired by General Electric. RCA's photomultiplier business was divested and continued as an independent company. Burle Industries, the successor to the RCA Corporation, carried the RCA photomultiplier business forward after 1986. In 2005 Burle Industries was acquired by Photonis. On 9 March 2009 Photonis announced that it would cease all production of photomultipliers.

Hamamatsu Photonics (also known as Hamamatsu) has emerged since the 1950s as a leader in the photomultiplier industry.

Some documents that might be interesting to read:

Other people measuring PMTs:

Model 8575

The photomultipliers we have of this model are all labeled RCA, meaning they were produced before the acquisition by GE. Finding the datasheet corresponding to RCA has been challenging, however the datasheet for the 8575 photomultiplier from Burle is easily found and is made available here (taken from http://123.physics.ucdavis.edu/shot_files/Burle_8575PMT.pdf).

Model XP2020

The manufacturer of our XP2020 tubes was not clearly indicated.

The Photonis datasheet for this tube is XP2020.pdf (taken from https://my.et-enterprises.com/pdf/XP2020.pdf)

The Phillips datasheet for this tube is Philips_XP2020.pdf (taken from https://wwwusers.ts.infn.it/~rui/univ/Acquisizione_Dati/Manuals/Philips%20XP2020.pdf)

Model XP2262

The Photonis datasheet for this tube is XP2262.pdf (taken from https://my.et-enterprises.com/pdf/XP2262.pdf)

Model 56 AVP

Finding information for these PMTs is not easy. Some relevant links that give datasheet-like information:

The Amperex catalog has the most comprehensive and detailed information we could find: AMP09.pdf (taken from https://frank.pocnet.net/other/Amperex/hafo/AMP09.pdf).

Model 53 AVP 03

Same as above.

The Amperex catalog has the most comprehensive and detailed information we could find: AMP09.pdf (taken from https://frank.pocnet.net/other/Amperex/hafo/AMP09.pdf).

Model 9813KB

Most of the tubes have a label with EMI 9813KB.

The datasheet we have comes from ET Enterprises: 9813B.pdf (taken from https://my.et-enterprises.com/pdf/9813B.pdf)

Model 6810

At one point we believed one of our photomultipliers was of this kind of model although it was clear it was not a perfect match. We later learned that the PMT was in fact an XP2020, but we leave here the information for reference.
