In photomultipliers the focusing voltage which gives the most peaked distribution is also the one which results in the largest count rate. For low focusing voltage there is a significant loss in single-photon events. The results of this experiment are consistent with the idea that the pulse distribution depends upon variations in the effective secondary emission ratio.
