An advanced study of new photo detector Silicon Photomultiplier (SiPM) is presented. SiPM consists of many (∼103 mm−2) silicon micro pixels, which are independent photon micro-counters working in limited Geiger mode with a gain of 10. The SiPM output signal is a sum of the signals from a number of pixels fired by photons. The main features of SiPM are: low excess noise factor, the photon detection efficiency at the level of vacuum PMT, low bias voltage (∼24V). The timing of the SiPM is about 30… CONTINUE READING
