Imaging photomultiplier array with integrated amplifiers and high-speed USB interface

Blacksell, M.; Wach, J.; Anderson, D.; Howard, J.; Collis, S. M.; Blackwell, B. D.; Andruczyk, D.; James, B. W.


Multianode photomultiplier tube (PMT) arrays are finding application as convenient high-speed light sensitive devices for plasma imaging. This paper describes the development of a USB-based "plug-n-play" 16-channel PMT camera with 16 bits simultaneous acquisition of 16 signal channels at rates up to 2 MSs per channel. The preamplifiers and digital hardware are packaged in a compact housing which incorporates magnetic shielding, on-board generation of the high-voltage PMT bias, an optical filter...[Show more]
