Compared to other photosensor technologies, such as PiN diodes, APDs, and PMTs, SiPMs offer a winning combination of properties. These include high gain, excellent PDE, and fast timing along with the practical advantages associated with solid-state technology: compactness, ruggedness, low bias voltage, and insensitivity to magnetic fields. Each SiPM series combines high photon detection efficiency (PDE) with low dark count rate; and with other varying characteristics that are suited to specific applications.

A complete introduction to Silicon Photomultipliers, their operational principle and key performance metrics.The Silicon Photomultiplier (SiPM) is a sensor that addresses the challenge of sensing, timing and quantifying low-light signals down to the single-photon level. Traditionally the province of the Photomultiplier Tube (PMT), the Silicon Photomultiplier now offers a highly attractive alternative that combines the low-light detection capabilities of the PMT while offering all the benefits of a solid-state sensor.
How to utilize SiPM in LiDAR and the impact of the various system and environmental factors on the resulting performance. This white paper is intended to assist in the development of SiPM (Silicon Photomultiplier) based LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) systems. The following sections contain information on the design and implementation of a direct ToF (Time-of-Flight) rangefinder, in terms of the laser, timing and optical parameters and detailed analysis of key aspects that must be considered when integrating SiPMs in such systems.
