Understanding Silicon Avalanche Photodiodes

Silicon Avalanche Photodiodes For Visible And Near IR Applications

LASER COMPONENTS looks to provide background information on the multiplication process in Silicon used in the materials for fabrication of PIN and Avalanche Photodiodes (APDs) for visible and near IR applications. This application note presents approaches to designing APDs, as well as other helpful information on the use of APDs. Download the full paper for more information on the APD design process, including how to factor in the quantum efficiency and the signal-to-noise-ratio.
