In this STTR project we will address the radiation hardness issues using radiation hard (RH) materials. We will based on the RH material to develop our photon counting APD device structure and grow and fabricate high-quality devices that can achieve high sensitivity, high uniformity, low dark counts, and fast and small after-pulse dark current. We will further utilize our high quality guard-ring and backside lens techniques to develop reliable, high uniformity, 2-D, APD arrays with near 90% fill-in factor for the detection area coverage.
