Abstract

A hybrid photodetector (HPD) consisting of a photocathode and a multipixel avalanche diode (MP-AD) was developed a few years ago. Our previous studies showed that its inherent potential for high resolution photon counting could be further enhanced by reducing fluctuations in charge loss in the dead layer at the entrance of the MP-AD. In this paper, we report on the improvement with the newly developed HPD whose encapsulated MP-AD has a thinner dead layer than before. It is demonstrated that the new HPD has much better energy resolution, which enables clearer counting up to nine photoelectrons. Further enhancement of the photocathode sensitivity of the HPD is also discussed.
