Characteristics of Extended Dynamic Range CEMs





Typical gain at 2.8 kV applied voltage 1 x 10e8
  Typical wall resistance Mohm 60 - 80
  Pulse height distribution at 2.8 kV and 3.000 cps % <80
  Dark count rate above a threshold of - 5 mV cps < 0.02
  Maximum count rate cps 15 Mio
  Typical pulse width (FWHM) at 2.3 kV nsec 8
  Operating voltage kV max. 3.5
  Temperature (operating and storage) °C max. 70
  Bake temperature in vacuum °C max. 250
The electro-optical specifications of the Extended Dynamic Range CEMs are valid for all models. Different are the sizes of the entrance funnels, the shape of the funnels (round, rectangular or square), and the angles between funnels and the CEM bodies. The dark count rates depend on the CEM opening and are at a minimum for smaller openings. Figures 1 - 6 show typical data plots for the Extended Dynamic Range CEMs measured with our test equipment.
