Visible Light Photon Counters (VLPCs), which were produced by Rockwell International Science Center for UCLA, can detect visible light down to the single photon level with a quantum efficiency approaching 80%. They were produced for the SSC Laboratory for a proposed scintillating fiber tracking detector. The VLPCs were tested and characterized at Rockwell and UCLA. They have better than 3 ns time resolution, and demonstrate count rate capabilities on the order of 3 X 107 mm-2s-1. Some test results, characteristics of the VLPCs, and applications will be discussed.
