In science:

The hole curriers to be caused by avalanche process in a given microregion of the p-n junction is collected in a small area of the S i − S iO2 boundary, reducing the value of voltage drop in this microregion of the semiconductor.
Supersensitive avalanche silicon drift photodetector
As a result each start avalanche process is self-switched in a few nanoseconds in the given microregion. A drift of the hole charge curriers from the avalanche region to the drain contact is provided by a high resistive layer during about 100 ns after switching of the given analanche process.
