Abstract :
The readout of scintillating fibers using Silicon APDs and Metal-Resistive-Semiconductor (MRS) devices was investigated in a large temperature range down to −150°C in the laboratory and at an electron beam. In comparison to conventional PMs with bialkali cathodes an improved efficiency was found for low light signals from blue and green scintillating fibers of 0.5 mm diameter.
