Abstract

The bright limit to the dynamic range of intensified CCD photon-counting detectors is governed by coincidence losses. In this paper a theoretical analysis of the loss mechanisms is carried out and verified using laboratory data. For applications where the input source is stable, such as star field imaging from space, the theoretical dynamic-range curve can then be used for accurate quantification.
