The Geiger-mode APD is a new semiconductor photon sensor which has high photon counting capability. Multi-Pixel Photon Counters (MPPC) is one of the Geiger-mode APD produced by Hamamatsu Photonics. In this paper, we report the basic properties such as waveform, breakdown voltage, gain ,dark noise, cross-talk, after-pulse and recovery of the MPPC at extremely low temperature, namely the ethanol with dry ice (200K) and the liquid nitrogen (77K).
