Photodiode and photomultiplier areal sensitivity anomalies
Author and Affiliation:
Youngbluth, O., Jr.(NASA Langley Research Center, Hampton, Va., United States)
Abstract: Several silicon photodiodes and photomultipliers were tested to determine signal variations as a light spot was scanned over the photosensitive surface of these detectors. Qualitative and quantitative data is presented to demonstrate the areal sensitivity anomalies. These anomalies are related back to the fabrication techniques of the manufacturers.
