Dead time corrections to photon counting statistics I: Classical theory
A complete solution is given to the problem of calculating the dead time corrections to the counting statistics of an arbitrary doubly stochastic Poisson process with a non-negative random intensity function. It is shown that for the particular case of an optical field with constant intensity, the general dead time modified counting formula leads to a corrected version of results earlier derived by Bedard.
