Photomultiplier tube module


The H14768 is a photomultiplier tube module consisting of a newly developed high sensitivity side-on photomultiplier tube, a high-voltage power supply circuit and a thermoelectric cooler. Cooling is super-efficient in the H14768 because the thermoelectric cooler is directly coupled to the photocathode of the photomultiplier tube. This also drastically reduces thermal noise (thermal electrons) emitted from the photocathode to allow making accurate measurements with a high signal to noise ratio even at very low light evels.
