Paper Abstract

In this paper, we present a theoretical analysis of gated mode single photon avalanche detector (SPAD) that quantifies the contribution of different parameters to the single photon quantum efficiency (SPQE).The study gives the variation of SPQE of SPAD with dark count probability for different parameters such as pulse repetition rate, hold-off time, pulse width for constant photon intensity which reveals that there exists an optimum value of Pd for which SPQE is maximized.
