Single-photon performances characterization of InGaAs/InP avalanche photodiodes (APDs) using a dual-APDs balanced-capacitance self-differencing operation was proposed. Small spike-noise and low discrimination-level were simultaneously achieved. Reducing in dark-count rate was also presented in the proposed scheme.
