Technology Concept: MRS APD’s are self-quenching APD’s which can operate near to breakdown. The purpose of this study is to be able to make low cost APD’s suitable for fiber tracking or other low light applications.
different versions of MRS APD’s the with different packaging styles.
Currently the dark currents are too high to allow for
efficient detection for signals below 100 photons. We are studying the device behaviour at lower temperatures.
