Paper Abstract

In this work it is shown the benefit of using waveform integration of the avalanche pulses of MPPC for enhancing the photon number resolving capability of Multi-Pixel Photon Counter (MPPC). Up to 47 photon equivalent peaks can be distinguished in the Photon-Number-Resolving (PNR) spectrum with a repetition frequency of 80 MHz, which is the largest reported number obtained at room temperature as far as we know.
