Abstract
Silicon avalanche photodiodes operated int he Geiger mode are capable of detecting single photons in the near infrared regime. We have designed and tested two types of quenching circuit, with a dead time of about 1 microsecond in the passive quenching mode and 60 ns in the active quenching mode. The performance of our detectors under various operating temperatures has been investigated, and measurements down to liquid nitrogen temperatures are reported for the first time.
