Description: Photomultipliers are used extensively in scintillation counting for the detection and analysis of ionizing radiation. the utilization of these detectors in a variety of technical disciplines has rendered standard test procedures desirable so that measurements may have the same meaning to all manufacturers and users. This standard is intended to imply not that all tests and procedures described are mandatory for every application, but only that such tests as are carried out on photomultipliers for scintillation and Cerenkov counting should be performed in accordance with the procedures given in this document.
