Abstract

"The required synchronization of a dynamic crossed-field photomultiplier tube (DCFP) is accomplished by means of a phase-locked loop for which the salient feature is the use of the DCFP as the phase detector. This action is necessitated due to the unique sampling and phase focusing type of operation of the DCFP. The phase-locked loop is implemented by dithering the phase of the synchronizing RF drive signal, bandpass filtering the output pulses of the DCFP and using a synchronous detector at the dither frequency to determine the phase relationship between the incoming mode-locked laser pulses and the RF drive signal. The error signal thus generated is filtered and used to drive the VCO which controls the RF drive phase for the DCFP"--Abstract, page ii.
