XENON is a dark matter direct detection experiment. It uses a dual phase (liquid-gas) xenon filled time projection chamber to observe of nuclear recoils induced by Weakly Interacting Massive Particles, measuring two scintillation signals. XENON1T, the next generation detector with a ton scale mass, is being installed at Gran Sasso National Laboratory in Italy. R11410 photomultiplier tubes produced by Hamamatsu will be used for detection of scintillation lights. The characterization of such devices has been performed during the summer school and the results of the study are discussed here.
