Image Intensifier Noise
Posted 11 January 2013 - 10:39 PM
I'm working on a project that requires some fast frame imaging with reasonable signal to noise and an intensifier followed by a fast frame rate camera is an option.
The question is whether a fast frame rate camera would capture too much noise and if the intensifier image needs to be integrated over a relatively slower frame rate in order to have a decent signal to noise.

The first best thing to do for noise reduction is to obtain an image having high surface brightness via a fast f/ratio.
Unfortunately the image scale is a fixed requirement and can't be changed.
