Paper Abstract

The applications of avalanche photodiodes (APDs) to linear measurement are discussed in this paper. Some factors that affect APDs' responsivity are analyzed in detail. Two available methods to maintain APDs' responsivity constant are proposed and a system which measures the peak power of low-level 1.06 micrometers laser pulses using APD detector is successfully demonstrated.
