Paper Abstract

Sources of an excess noise in avalanche photodiodes and photomultiplier tubes are considered in this paper. Special techniques for minimizing the noise contribution in detected signals are discussed. Typical applications of detectors in atomic spectroscopy and optical communication are used as illustration of the proposed tools for noise reduction.
