Measurement of photon correlations with multipixel photon counters
Development of reliable photon-number-resolving detectors (PNRDs), devices that are capable of distinguishing 1,2,3… photons, is of a great importance for quantum optics and its applications. A new
Study of the response and photon-counting resolution of silicon photomultipliers using a generic simulation framework
We present a generic framework for the simulation of Silicon Photomultipliers (SiPMs) which enables detailed modelling of the SiPM response using basic SiPM parameters and geometry as an input.

Reconstruction of the statistics of photons by a pulsed LED using a Silicon Photomultiplier based set-up
Silicon Photomultipliers are a new class of light sensitive detectors with single photon sensitivity and unprecedented photon number resolving capability. These properties open up the possibility to
Direct Measurement of Non-Classical Photon Statistics with a Multi-Pixel Photon Counter
Photon number resolving detectors with high accuracy bring broad applications in long-distance laser ranging, ultrafast spectroscopy, and quantum optics. In this paper, we observed the non-classical
Crosstalk calibration of multi-pixel photon counters using coherent states.
TLDR
A novel method of calibration of crosstalk probability for multi-pixel photon counters (MPPCs) based on the measurement of the normalized second-order intensity correlation function of coherent light that can be applied without the need of modification for different kinds of spatially resolved single photon detectors.
Perfomance of Silicon Photomultipliers in photon number and time resolution
Silicon Photomultipliers (SiPMs) are a novel generation of photon detectors designed as an array of independently operated Geiger-mode APDs (pixels) with common output. SiPM provides proportional
NUV Silicon Photomultipliers With High Detection Efficiency and Reduced Delayed Correlated-Noise
In this paper, we present the characteristics and performances of new silicon photomultipliers (SiPMs), produced at FBK, for the near-ultraviolet (NUV) light detection, with reduced afterpulsing and
