Abstract

We have measured the relationship between the input and output pulse rates for an EELS pulse counting system. Two simple formulae for predicting the behaviour of such a system are compared with the data. One is for a system which has extendible deadtime. The other is for the counting system which has non‐extendible deadtime. The latter provides agreement with our experimental results over the range 0–20 MHz. 1987 Blackwell Science Ltd
