    Abstract

    The avalanche photodiode (APD) is a promising device for single-photon detection. In this study, we operated an InGaAs APD in the sub-Geiger mode. In this mode, a gate pulse is not needed; therefore, we can detect photons with asynchronous timing. The detection efficiency and the dark count rate were 2.2% and 7900 counts per second (cps), respectively.
