Peaked pulse height distributions are obtained from curved channel electron multipliers at high gain levels. They are caused by a gain saturating mechanism which limits the instantaneous output current from the multiplier. Various limiting mechanisms are considered. Experimental and theoretical evidence strongly supports the hypothesis that space charge limiting is the major cause of gain saturation.
