Paper Abstract

This paper will review the development of single photon counting sensors at Boeing Spectrolab. Future development over the next five years will be discussed in the context of sensor requirements that have been established and will be established. Greater sensitivity through lower false event rates, higher bandwidths, lower after-pulsing rates, higher operating temperatures, and better uniformity are figures-of-merit that will be discussed in this presentation. We will present performance of large format InP/InGaAs Geiger mode avalanche photodiode arrays operating at 1.06 μm and 1.55 μm.
