The Silicon Photomultiplier (SiPM) represents a new step in the development of the modern silicon based detection structures in the area of low photon flux detection. The high intrinsic gain obtained in the detecting structure is responsible of the digital signal nature of the SiPM at the elementary cell level. In this paper the study and development of SiPM detection structures is shown, for the specific application to the read out of scintillation light in high energy physics and Nuclear Medicine.
