InGaAs/InP devices suitable as Single-Photon Avalanche Diodes (SPADs) for photon counting and photon timing applications in the near-infrared provide good detection efficiency and low time jitter, together with fairly low darkcount rate at moderately low temperatures. However, their performance is still severely limited by the afterpulsing effect, caused by carriers trapped into deep levels during the avalanche current flow and later released. We present preliminary experimental… CONTINUE READING
