Logarithm of PHA with deadtime

Tag: Math,Noiseadmin @ 10:23 am

The logarithm of the data is often used in x-ray imaging systems because it is (very) approximately proportional to the line integral. The statistics of the log of the counts in photon counting detectors are are different than those of the counts as summarized in my last post and I derive them in this post. I then test the formulas using a Monte Carlo simulation.
