Linear-mode avalanche photodiode arrays for low-noise near-infrared imaging in space

Gilbert, James; Grigoriev, Alexey; King, Shanae; Mathew, Joice; Sharp, Rob; Vaccarella, Annino


Astronomical observations often require the detection of faint signals in the presence of noise, and the near-infrared regime is no exception. In particular, where the application has short exposure time constraints, we are frequently and unavoidably limited by the read noise of a system. A recent and revolutionary development in detector technology is that of linear-mode avalanche photodiode (LmAPD) arrays. By the introduction of a signal multiplication region within the device, effective read...[Show more]
