Simulating MT images (notes from Feb 12 meeting)

Randomly place emitters

using MT lattice

Each emitter produces airy disc in image plane

All air discs add up to form final probability density function for photon arrivals

Single-photon simulation

PDF in image plane can be used to randomly land photons

two random numbers per photon

double-precision number for photon position is converted into pixel location

All pixels are 16-bit (or maybe even double-precision) so you can count all photons without saturating

Starter-project for this method

Poisson (Gaussian) approx method

Actual average number of photons in an image is somehow estimated (from real data, perhaps)

Predict photons in oversampled (10x e.g.) image

Convert oversampled image to 1x version
