SNR with pileup

Tag: Math,Noise,Physicsadmin @ 2:32 pm
In this post I conclude my discussion of my “SNR with pileup …” paper[2]. I will present and explain the code to reproduce the “bottom line” figures 3 to 5 of the paper that show the decrease of the SNR as the pileup parameter η increases. The decrease is rapid and when the value of η reaches 1, all the counting and PHA detectors have SNR smaller than the energy integrating detector. The NQ detector SNR decreases rapidly and approaches but marginally stays above the Q SNR since it uses that signal.
