Electrical and computer engineers at the University of Virginia and University of Texas-Austin have developed an avalanche photodiode that achieved record performance and has the potential to transform next generation night-vision imaging and Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) receivers. For LiDAR, the team’s low-noise, two-micrometer avalanche photodiode enables higher-power operation that is eye-safe. The peer reviewed paper was published May 18, 2020, in Nature Photonics.
