Abstract

Maximum-likelihood estimation methods offer many advantages for processing experimental data to extract information, especially when combined with carefully measured calibration data. There are many tasks relevant to x-ray and gamma-ray detection that can be addressed with a new, fast ML-search algorithm that can be implemented in hardware or software. Example applications include gamma-ray event position, energy, and timing estimation, as well as general applications in optical testing and wave-front sensing.
