A systematic study of large PMTs for the Pierre Auger Observatory

Abstract

In order to select the most suitable Photomultiplier Tubes (PMTs) for the surface detectors of the Pierre Auger Observatory, we have performed extensive tests on large PMTs from three different manufacturers: Electron Tubes Limited, Hamamatsu Photonics, and Photonis Imaging Sensors. We have developed specialized instrumentation to accurately measure the PMT… (More)
