Fairchild DuMont 6467  
Written by Accutron on 2017-05-04  

The DuMont 6467 is a 10-stage photomultiplier with an apical window. Instead of employing RCA's ubiquitous 9-stage circular configuration, the 6467 has a linear cascade of silver-magnesium dynodes, which provide a high signal-to-noise ratio at low light levels. The 6467 has a S-4 spectral response, with sensitivity peaking between 350 and 450nm.

The 6467 pictured here is a later example, manufactured after DuMont Laboratories was acquired by Fairchild Camera & Instrument in 1960.
