This repository contains an archived copy of the source code and supporting documents for the Simple Monte Carlo Simulator v1.0.0.
The Simple Monte Carlo Simulator is a standalone executable capable of simulating Avalanche Photodiode (APD) and Single Photon Avalanche Photodiode (SPAD) characteristics in Si, GaAs and InGaP. Written in C++.
A software metapaper has been published on this model. "Simple Monte Carlo Simulator for Modelling Linear Mode and Geiger Mode Avalanche Photodiodes in C++", J.D. Petticrew et al. https://doi.org/10.5334/jors.212

The Simple Monte Carlo Simulator has been used to produce the results in "Avalanche Breakdown Timing Statistics for Silicon Single Photon Avalanche Diodes", J.D. Petticrew et al. https://doi.org/10.1109/JSTQE.2017.2779834
The Si parameter set is from "A simple Monte Carlo model for prediction of avalanche multiplication process in Silicon", X. Zhou et al. https://doi.org/10.1088/1748-221/7/08/P08006
The InGaP parameter set is from "The effect of dead space on gain and excess noise in In0.48Ga0.52P p+in+ diodes", C.H. Tan et al. https://doi.org/10.1088/0268-1242/18/8/314
The GaAs parameter set is from "A simple model for avalanche multiplication including deadspace effects", S.A. Plimmer et al. https://doi.org/10.1109/16.753712
