Abstract

Hamamatsu R5900-00-M64 and R7600-00-M64 photomultiplier tubes will be used with wavelength-shifting optical fibres to read out scintillator strips in the MINOS near detector. We report on measurements of the gain, efficiency, linearity, crosstalk, and dark noise of 232 of these PMTs, of which 219 met MINOS requirements.
