Silicon photomultipliers are important in liquid argon detectors of short-baseline neutrino oscillation experiments. Furthermore, in spin-polarized proton and deuteron targets of photoproduction experiments, SiPMs are used for recoil identification down to absolute zero temperature. For these and future applications a characterization over the full cryogenic temperature range is obligatory. ... More

Silicon photomultiplier (SiPM) seems to be a promising photon sensor to be used in future large-scale Ring Imaging Cherenkov (RICH) detectors of the modern experiments due to their potentially low costs, compactness and immunity to magnetic field. The only drawbacks are relatively high dark counts and radiation hardness issues. Digital SiPMs integrating most of the front-end electronics on chi ... More
