Paper Abstract

An overview of the Intensified Photodiode (IPD) is presented with an emphasis on IPDs optimized for use in the 950nm to 1350nm spectral range for single photon detection applications. The theory of operation of the IPD, two different electron optics designs, and device performance for a multichannel, 4x4 pixel array, low jitter IPD optimized for operation at 1060nm are presented in this paper. Key results include greater than 15% quantum efficiency, large active area, and less than 550ps impulse response.
