On Wednesday, July 29th, IEEE Xplore will undergo scheduled maintenance from 7:00-9:00 AM ET (11:00-13:00 UTC). During this time there may be intermittent impact on performance. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Various types of time interval distributions are calculated assuming a compound Poisson law for the photoelectron emission. The experimental results obtained with the high gain first dynode photomultiplier RCA C 31000 D are discussed with reference to an exponential illumination function. Time resolution curves are measured by performing first photoelectron triggering.
