English The present manuscript reviews our R+D studies on the application of large area avalanche photodiodes (LAAPDs) to the detection of X-rays and vacuum ultraviolet (VUV) light. The operational characteristics of LAAPDs manufactured by Advanced Photonix Inc. were investigated for X-ray detection at room temperature. The optimum energy resolution obtained in four LAAPDs investigated was found to be... Show more…
