Electron Multipliers Information

electron multiplierElectron Multipliers are electrical components that detect incident electrons, ions, vacuum UV (VUV), and soft X-ray and intensify the subsequent detected signal through secondary emission.

Applications:

  • Photomultipliers
  • Particle detectors
  • Electron microscopes

electron multiplierTypes:

The two most common types of electron multipliers are the discrete-dynode electron multiplier, and the continuous-dynode electron multiplier (often referred to as a channel electron multiplier or CEM).
