Paper Abstract

We start with a physical model1 of the detector and associated electronics. Using previously derived expressions for the MTF and noise power spectrum, we extend the use of the model to include a signal-to-noise metric, the noise equivalent quanta (NEQ). This approach is then applied in a design example relevant to film and document scanning.
