We describe here the outlines of research undertaken by Fermilab into timing characteristics of photodetectors. We describe our experimental method and give benchtop results on the timing resolution of micro-channel plate photomultipliers (MCP-PMT) and silicon photomultipliers (SiPM). In addition, we describe results of various configurations of these detectors, along with quartz radiators, in particle test beams at Fermilab. Results for timing of scintillator light using the DRS4 high speed digitizer are also presented.
