Photon counting with passively quenched germanium avalanche

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

We demonstrate photon counting in germanium avalanche photodiodes biased beyond breakdown and quenched with a simple series resistance circuit. The devices show moderate (> 7%) quantum efficiency with limited afterpulsing and dark counts and subnanosecond jitter.
