Description

We present results of advance studies of large area photomultipliers (PMTs) of different types from several manufacturers for use in a new Baksan Large Neutrino telescope. At first, requirements for photodetectors to be used in the telescope were formulated. Parameters of 8-inch, 10-inch and 20-inch PMTs were thoroughly studied. 8-inch PMTs under studies were ET9350 from ET Enterprises, R5912 and R5912-100 from Hamamatsu Photonics. 10-inch PMTs – R7081 and R7081-100 and R7081-100-WA from Hamamatsu Photonics. 20-inch PMTs – R12860 from Hamamatsu Photonics and MCP-PMT from NNVT. Particular emphasis was done on measurements of photocathode sensitivity, single photoelectron response, TTS, dark current counting rate and afterpulses rate.
