Abstract

We continue examination of the photon correlation properties of silicon avalanche photodiodes operated in the single-photon counting mode by extending their operation from that of passive [ Appl. Opt. 25, 4122– 4126 ( 1986)] and active [ Appl. Opt. 26, 2383– 2389 ( 1987)] quenching to the sub-Geiger mode, with potential for high quantum efficiency and very low afterpulsing.
