Abstract
A measurement system is described for acquiring the gain distributions of avalanche photodiodes (APDs) in a range of low average gain. The system is based on an ultralow-noise capacitive transimpedance amplifier to readout the charges generated in an APD. The low noise level of the readout circuit about 7 electrons at the sampling rate of 200 Hz enables us to characterize the gain distributions. The gain distribution of a commercial silicon (Si) APD measured at gain of 3.29 using this system is presented.
