abstract = {We report the measurement of higher order cumulants of the current fluctuations in an avalanche diode with a stationary dc current. Such a system is archetypal of devices in which transport is governed by a collective mechanism, in this case charge multiplication by avalanche. We have measured the first five cumulants of the probability distribution of the current fluctuations. We show that the charge multiplication factor is distributed according to a power law that is different from that of the usual avalanche below breakdown, when avalanches are well separated. 2009 The American Physical Society.},
