The triggered photocounting distribution (TPCD) of practical fields has been investigated. The moment generating function and the factorial moment are exactly deduced from theory and experimentally justified by the measurement of Gaussian-Lorentzian light. It is found that the first-order factorial moment of the TPCD has the spectral information of incident light corresponding to the second-order factorial moment of ordinary photocounting distribution.
