The light from the lead tungstate crystals of the barrel part of the CMS ECAL will be measured using avalanche photodiodes developed for the purpose by Hamamatsu Photonics in collaboration with CMS. The requirements for the diodes are described, and the performance achieved is summarised, with emphasis on the long-term reliability in the difficult high radiation conditions at CMS.
