The Multi Pixel Photon Counter (MPPC) is a semiconductor photon sensor which has a multi micro-APD pixel structure which works in limited Geiger mode. Since the MPPC has many attractive features, such as good performance, low cost, compact size and tolerance for magnetic fields, we are developing and studying it, aiming to use it for the scintillator-strip calorimeter readout for the GLD detector. As a result of this study, we have found that the latest 1600 pixel MPPC has satisfactory performance and is feasible for calorimetric use. However further study and development are still needed and are in progress, especially with regards to dynamic range, robustness and radiation hardness.
