Conventional SiC UV sensors are used for UV radiation dosage measurement in many industries. However, for many existing cutting-edge applications as well as emerging applications, what people need is to detect extremely weak UV signal with high speed. In this case, only avalanche photodides (APDs) based on SiC could meet these requirements. High performance APDs could have ns-level response speed, high avalanche gain up to 1e6, and could even work in single photon count mode (Geiger mode).
