Deadtime 4-Monte Carlo simulation of PHA data

Tag: Implementation,Noise,Physics,Uncategorizedadmin @ 10:22 am

I used a Monte Carlo simulation to test the formulas derived in my last post for the mean value, variance, and covariance of pulse height analysis (PHA) data as a function of deadtime. In this post, I discuss the simulation software and the results. The formulas were quite accurate except for the covariance where the relatively small value and the difficulty in getting good statistics for variance estimates in general caused a spread around the theoretical values.
