Paper Abstract

For the photon address digital detector system (PADDS), the determination of position and time of photon events depend on the algorithm used for detection. The introduction of a digital signal processor shifts the problem of evaluation from hardware to software. Different algorithms can be tested in one setup. For a point source, the algorithms can be compared by the statistical properties of the resulting distributions. The data flow in PADDS is presented and different algorithms are discussed.
