A detailed model for a Monte-Carlo simulation of the response of Silicon Photomultipliers (SiPMs) is presented. Comparisons with experimental data show a good agreement. The model allows investigating which SiPM-specific features affect energy and time resolution. Furthermore, the simulation is an important tool for the optimization of a detector layout and the design of read-out schemes.
