Paper Abstract

At low light levels detection of objects with the aid of image intensifier systems is noise-limited. A novel yet simple digital measurement technique is presented whereby only the frequency response of the measurement system to the white noise in the input light signal is used for the accurate determination of the signal-to-noise ratio.
