Paper Abstract

As has been shown in [1] pulsed avalanche multiplication in MIS ( Metal-Insulator-Semiconductor ) structures ( Me-Dioxide Si-Si(p)) has a superior advantages over that in p-n junction. High gain coefficients (up to 1O) of the photosignal with high threshold sensitivity (about 10 photons or even better); large sensitive areas (more then 10 mm2 ) and a possibility to construct a matrix-type MIS-Avalanche-Photodetector (MISAP) with a common power supply for all the elements of the MISAP. The goal of this paper is to present some new principles allowing one to extract wavelengths (color) information from photosignals. As a summary of this paper new types of optoelectronic devices: MISAP High Sensitivity Color Video Camera (CVC) and MISAP Matrix Pulsed High Sensitivity SpectroPhotoineter with Spatial Resolution of the incident light flux (MPSP) are proposed.
