The usual formula for the excess noise produced in a simple avalanche photodiode may be introduced in a particularly simple manner by taking advantage of the fact that the ionization coefficients usually encountered in practice are often regarded as constant throughout the device for any specific applied bias voltage. An analytic expression for the hole current as a function of position, along with a novel interpretation of the minimum-noise condition, are also given
