Abstract
We present a study on the characteristics of the AMD method. We have demonstrated that the photon economy of the AMD method is not degraded for longer lifetimes even when the applied integration window size is increased. By an extension of MCS, the photon economy with respect to different designs of the Gaussian low-pass filter (GLPF) used in the AMD setup was also studied. When a GLPF with the highest cutoff frequency of 100 MHz is applied, the most effective photon economy performance is achieved for lifetimes of 1, 3.2, 5, and 8 ns.
