Paper Abstract

Triggered-avalanche photon counting, recently demonstrated in cooled Silicon photodiodes, should also work in any other intrinsic semiconductor material. As carrier-trapping problems are solved, photon-counting diodes and arrays should become available throughout the mid-infrared. Possible applications to astronomical instruments abound.
