Abstract
The theory of stochastic signal processing describes signals, which contain statistical fluctuations, by their statistical properties like mean and variance. Since the fluctuations, or simply the noise, in coherent x-ray scatter signals are known to follow Poisson statistics, this theory can be used to derive detection properties under different system conditions. This paper will show how the Poisson-noise can be transformed into white noise and that a false detection rate for signals containing white noise can be calculated. Furthermore the application to the optimization of collimator design will be studied.
