12 June 2007 A single photon avalanche detector: SPAD
Author Affiliations +
New single photon avalanche detectors (SPAD), are presented. Device performances, as photo-detection efficiency, timing and dark counts, extracted in several experimental conditions and here reported, make them suitable in many applications. The integration possibility, in order to achieve a new concept of solid state photomultiplier, has been also successfully investigated within the 5x5 arrays manufacture.
