Abstract: We report on the realization of a novel silicon photomultiplier (SiPM)-based, cryogenic photosensor with an active area of 24 cm(2) that operates as a single-channel analog detector. The device is capable of single-photon counting with a signal-to-noise ratio better than 13, a dark rate lower than 10(-2) Hz/mm(2), and an overall photon detection efficiency significantly larger than traditional photomultiplier tubes. This development makes SiPM-based photosensors strong candidates for the next generation of dark matter and neutrino detectors, which will require multiple square meters of photosensitive area, low levels of intrinsic radioactivity, and a limited number of detector channels.
