abstract = "The two most important parameters characteristic of multiplier phototubes are: γ, the photoanodic sensitivity factor (which is the number of amperes produced at the photoanode to the watts of radiant power reaching the photocathode) and *BM,* the effective gain of the multiplier
phototube. *M* is the actual gain of the multiplier phototube (*M=G*^{x}, where *G* is the gain per dynode and *x* is the number of dynodes) and *B* is a statistical factor which accounts for electrons produced at the dynodes and for electrons lost in the transit
from cathode to anode.",
