Abstract A discriminator circuit for use with millimicrosecond counting equipment is described here. The circuit utilizes a diode voltage comparator which drives a secondary-emission tube univibrator after amplification. Two shaped outputs are provided: one, of short duration, for use with 10-Mc scalers; ard another longer pulse for microsecond scalers. The main characteristics of this unit are its good response to pulses as short as 3 m mu sec and the fast recovery time, which is less than 0.1 mu sec at the fast output.
