Paper Abstract

The operation of a simple photon counting system is described and the advantages of photon counting and integrated charge measurements are discussed. The selection of a photomultiplier tube for photon counting is considered together with the other components. The relationship between the single electron response, the bias curve and the plateau curve and their use when setting up a photon counting system are discussed. A new photon counting system is described.
