Photons detection will continue to be a channel of great interest in the High Energy Physics and Astroparticle Physics fields for medium and big scale experiments in the next future. Thus, new solutions for photon detectors, that overcome the current limits of classical photomultipliers, are welcomed. We propose an innovative design for a hybrid, modern, high gain Vacuum Silicon Photomultiplier Tube (VSiPMT) which is boosted by the recent Geiger-mode avalanche silicon photodiode (G-APD) for which a massive production is today available.

Abstract

Photons detection will continue to be a channel of great interest in the High Energy Physics and Astroparticle Physics fields for medium and big scale experiments in the next future. Thus, new solutions for photon detectors, that overcome the current limits of classical photomultipliers, are welcomed. We propose an innovative design for a hybrid, modern, high gain Vacuum Silicon Photomultiplier Tube (VSiPMT) which is boosted by the recent Geiger-mode avalanche silicon photodiode (G-APD) for which a massive production is today available.
