Abstract : A demountable test system is used to determine operating characteristics of electron multipliers which will be used in cesium beam tubes. Tests are performed using an electron input signal. Multiplier gain and dynode secondary electron emission coefficients are calculated from these test data. Environmental effects of air exposure and vacuum bake are also determined.
