Abstract

This paper presents a novel error model for TiRe-LII signals and illustrates how the model can be used to diagnose a detection system, quantify uncertainties in TiRe-LII, and characterize fluctuations in the measured process. Noise in a single TiRe-LII measurement shot obeys a Poisson–Gaussian noise model. Variation in the aerosol results in shot-to-shot fluctuations in the measured signals. These fluctuations induce a quadratic relationship between the mean and variance of a set of signals. We show how this model can elucidate aspects of the measurement system and fundamental properties of the aerosol, by comparing the noise model to four sets of experimental data.
