A photomultiplier is an electronic device that converts a light signal or light beam into an equivalent amplified electrical signal. Electrons produced by the photoelectric effect from an illuminated cathode, bombard a series of other electrodes and are increased in number at each bombardment. An amplified signal is obtained from the final stage.
