Evolving CMOS Technology for High-Performance Single-Photon Detection
For decades, solid-state detectors could capture individual photons. This is now possible to do
using avalanche photodiodes. So-called single-photon avalanche diodes (SPADs) are avalanche
photodiodes biased above breakdown in Geiger mode and fabricated using CMOS processes.
