Photoelectric Effect at Sub-Photon Energy in Incident Pulsed Laser Radiation

  title={Photoelectric Effect at Sub-Photon Energy in Incident Pulsed Laser Radiation},
  author={Valerii I Kovalev},
  journal={arXiv: Optics},
Photoelectric effect in a Ge-on-Si single-photon avalanche detector (SPAD) at a sub-photon energy in incident pulsed laser radiation is considered in frames of classical electrodynamics of continuous media. It is shown that the energy of incident laser radiation, which is shared among a huge number of electrons in Ge matrix, can concentrate on only one of these through the effect of the constructive interference of the fields re-emitted by surrounding electrons. Conservation of energy in this…

Ge-on-Si Single-Photon Avalanche Diode Detectors: Design, Modeling, Fabrication, and Characterization at Wavelengths 1310 and 1550 nm

The design, modeling, fabrication, and characterization of single-photon avalanche diode detectors with an epitaxial Ge absorption region grown directly on Si are presented. At 100 K, a single-photon

InGaAs-on-Si single photon avalanche photodetectors

In this letter, an InGaAs-on-Si single photon avalanche diode (SPAD) for telecommunication wavelengths is presented. This SPAD demonstrates high-single-photon quantum efficiency and low-dark-count

Two points of view on photon: Quantum field theory and photocounts

Modern concepts of the physical phenomenon described by the term “photon”, which was introduced simultaneously with the acceptance of quantum concepts in physics, are presented. Since that time, this

The Concept of the Photon—Revisited

The photon concept is one of the most debated issues in the history of physical science. Some thirty years ago, we published an article in Physics Today entitled "The Concept of the Photon," 1 in

Single-photon generation and detection

The detection and generation of single photons has seen an upsurge in interest in recent years as new scientific fields of research, for example quantum information processing, have been established.

Invited review article: Single-photon sources and detectors.

We review the current status of single-photon-source and single-photon-detector technologies operating at wavelengths from the ultraviolet to the infrared. We discuss applications of these
