This work deals with the optical characterisation of the surface of EG&G and Hamamatsu APDs and performance of an antireflection coating made of Y2O3and deposited on a PWO test piece. The effect of antireflection treatments of PWO and Si surfaces is evaluated in a simplified and a realistic situation by means of the ratio of "detected to emitted photons". © 1998 Elsevier Science B.V.
