Measurement and modeling of the nonlinearity of photovoltaic and Geiger-mode photodiodes.


While in most cases the absolute accuracy, resolution, and noise floor are the only relevant specifications for the dynamic range of a photodetector, there are experiments for which the linearity plays a more important role than the former three properties. In these experiments nonlinearity can lead to systematic errors. In our work we present a modern… (More)
