Abstract
The visible light photon counters (VLPCs) have been developed as a result of the joint work between the UCLA and the Rockwell International Science Center since 1988. The VLPCs with quantum efficiencies approaching 80% and having avalanche gains of 30000, rate capabilities of 50 millions per second per millimeter square with a time resolution better than one nanosecond have been applied to high energy particle physics research, medical imaging and particle astrophysics. A survey of VLPC development with some results and applications is presented.
