Photon Transfer Analysis method (from WSP 2009 talk)

This is a powerful method to determine many parameters describing your imaging system. This talk teaches the basics as to what a PTC will do,  how to make one and the things you can learn from it including:

Read Noise

Full Well Capacity

Camera Gain

Photo Response Non-Uniformity

Dark Signal Non-Uniformity

Effectiveness of the Flat-Fielding operation

Signal to noise optimization 

Minimum detection limit
