The VLPC is a solid state device that makes use of avalanches across a shallow impurity conduction band in silicon.
The VLPC also featured noise-free avalanche multiplication and narrow pulse height distribution for single photon detection events; therefore, we investigated the simultaneous multi-photon detection capability using twin photons generated by parametric down-conversion.
