Figure 1
Illustration of the timing structures for (a) continuous- and (b) burst-mode acquisition. In continuous mode, the two counters per pixel alternate between accumulating events and being read out. In burst mode, the counts in 12× short exposures are stored in the pixel-local counters before a longer interval is used to read out the stored data. The schematic below (b) illustrates pixel-response dead-time and its effect on recording multiple photons in a single exposure.
