Abstract
In this contribution we present the results of the first morphological and electro-optical characterization of Silicon Photomultipliers (SiPM) for nuclear medical imaging applications fabricated in standard silicon planar technology at the STMicroelectronics Catania R&D clean room facility. We have improved our previous Geiger Mode Avalanche Photodiodes (GMAP) technology in order to realize a photodetector with relevant features in terms of single-photoelectron resolution, timing and photon detection efficiency. The performances of our devices, investigated in several experimental conditions and here reported make ST-SiPM suitable in many applications like for example PET (Positron Emission Tomography).
