Measurement of absolute photon detection efficiency of different silicon photomultipliers.
Silicon photomultipliers (SiPM) is a photon detector consists of a micro-cells matrix. Each micro-cell is a Geiger-Mode avalanche photo-diode working beyond the breakdown voltage. SiPM are used in tasks that require registration UV, Visible and Near-infrared weak light signals. Silicon photomultipliers have high photon detection efficiency, gain, good time resolution, compact size, and insensitivity to the magnetic field. We have compared the photon detection efficiency of the light of several detectors: MRS-APD (CPTA), MPPC S10931-100P, S13360-6050PE (Hamamatsu), MicroFC-60035-SMT, MicroFC-30035-SMT (SensL) at several wavelengths of light.
