Abstract

Silicon Photomultipliers are a new class of light sensitive detectors with single photon sensitivity and unprecedented photon number resolving capability. These properties open up the possibility to verify the statistics of the emitted light analysing the data collected by the sensor. In this paper, a procedure based on a Multi-Gaussian Fit of the spectrum and a model accounting for detector related effects is proposed and qualified using a LED illuminating a Silicon Photomultiplier.
