Paper Abstract

InGaAs/InP avalanche photodiode in photon detection mode was researched. The automatic experimental setup was developed. The parameters of single photon detector were optimized for quantum cryptography application in temperature range -38...-57C for 1.3 μm wavelength. Quantum efficiency 16% at quantum bit error rate 10% and dark count probability 7 10-5 at -38C was achieved.
