Paper Abstract

The photomultiplier tube (PMT) that can work in different wavelength is an important detector device in remote sense technology. Microsphere plate using glass beads 50to 70μm in diameter sintered together is the core component of the microsphere plate photomultiplier tube It is a novel two-dimension electron multiplier. The electrons gain for a single plate is about 1017 and do not have the phenomenon of ion-feedback. Furthermore the fabrication process is very easy. In this paper, much interest was put on the microsphere plate photomultiplier tube. Based on the analyses from the theory and the experiment result, we point out the key technology for fabricating PMT is how to obtain glass beads with narrow range in diameter and how to sinter the glass beads with a sufficient pylome. Factors affect the gradating technology and sintering process along with the solution to them is presented. In the last, the structure scheme and technological characteristic for fabricating microsphere plate photomultiplier tube were given. The pulse rising-time of MSP-PMT is below 400ps suitable to the detection of high-speed pulse. As easy to be fabricated and has great advantage over MCP multiplier in the ratio of performance to price, the microsphere plate photomultiplier tube is a promising dim-light detector.
