Abstract

We examine the saturation of relative current gain of In0.53Ga0.47As/InP single photon avalanche diodes (SPADs) operated in Geiger mode. The punch-through voltage and breakdown voltage of the SPADs can be measured using a simple and accurate method. The analysis method is temperature-independent and can be applied to most SPADs.
