Is it possible for light emitted by a scintillator to be too low in frequency to be used in a photomultiplier tube? Explain.

To determine

Whether it is possible for light emitted by a scintillator to be too low in frequency to be used in a photomultiplier tube.

Explanation
  • Scintillators are the radiation detectors which can be a solid or liquid. These instruments have very high efficiency and they are used for the conversion of radiation of energy into light. By the output obtained as a light tell us about the type of energy, charge and energy of the radiation. By the light flashes of scintillators, a huge number of particles can be detected in a short-pan of period.
  • Photomultiplier tube converts the scintillators light signal into the electrical signals. In this device light strikes a metal plate which leads to emission of electrons, then next plate to it attract the electrons by a positive potential difference...
