The search for optimal receivers endowed with photon-number-resolving capability has led us to consider Silicon photomultipliers for Quantum Optics experiments. By adopting an optimization procedure in order to reduce the spurious effects characterizing these detectors, we succeeded in detecting nonclassical correlations between the two parties of mesoscopic twin-beam states and in obtaining subPoissonian conditional states. These results put SiPMs forward for the implementation of Quantum Information and Communication protocols.
