We report advancements in APDs and arrays using 4H SiC. Novel structures, array designs and specialized read out integrated circuits have been developed towards the realization of UV and solar-blind detector arrays exhibiting appreciable quantum efficiency, low noise and Geiger-mode operation. Discussion will include the design, fabrication and testing of these devices, which may find use in a variety of applications.
