Abstract
We have studied the timing property of a Hybrid Avalanche PhotoDiode, Hamam atsu R7110U-07, and attained a time resolution of sigma (t) similar to 150 ps for single photons and less than or equal to 100 ps for a few photons un der certain conditions of photocathode voltage and diode reverse bias volta ge. Relation between the achievable timing resolution and a multiplication gain is discussed, especially in realizing sigma (t) less than or equal to 100 ps for single photons.
