Paper Abstract

In this work we characterized several state-of-the-art high sensitivity optical detectors. We compared avalanche photo diode devices (APD) with multi-pixel photon counting devices (MPPC) in several characteristics such as detection efficiency and response times. We then discussed some of the results.
