The rise time of a gas-filled photodiode at blue-green wavelengths is found to be less than that at red wavelengths. As photoionization of excited atoms in such devices increases response to light of decreasing wavelength over that provided by the photocathode, spectral differences in rise time are also attributed to the same mechanism. It is suggested that these phenomena decrease parasitic inductance of the tube. This implies that rise times in glow discharge detectors of EM radiation can be improved through miniaturization of inter-electrode spacing.
