SNR with pileup-3 PHA detector statistics with pileup

Tag: Math,Physics,softwareadmin @ 11:31 am
This post continues the discussion of my paper “Signal to noise ratio of energy selective x-ray photon counting systems with pileup”[1], which is available for free download here. Following the road map described in my last post, I am deriving and validating formulas for the statistics of photon counting detectors with pileup. In this post, I describe formulas for the expected value and covariance of pulse height analysis data with pileup and present software to verify the formulas with Monte Carlo simulations.
