Abstract

A computer simulation method is employed to investigate the dead-time modified photocount detection distribution where the ratio of coherence time of the incident radiation to the counting time τc/T ≦ 1. The principal result is to demonstrate that a dead-time correction formula that was derived for τc/T ≫ 1 may be modified to be applicable to arbitrary coherence times. The simulation technique was verified by comparing simulated results with known results for dead-time modified photocount distribution for radiation with τc/T ≫ 1 and for unmodified photocount distribution for radiation with τc/T ≦ 1.
