Abstract

Dead-time effects on measured mean count rates and temporal correlation functions of light with gamma-distributed intensity are corrected by using a general p-type detector model and a new approximation for nonparalyzable systems. Successful corrections of simulated and measured correlation functions of light scattered by Brownian particles support the validity of our model calculations.
