      I’m experiencing some confusion about the implementation of a Single Photon Detector (SPD) in OptiSystem. When I go into the Component View of the SPD after running a simulation and look at the Photon Counts vs. Time plot, I find that the detector gives the exact number of photons received during the time the detector was active. Does it function as a photon number resolving detector rather than a threshold detector? If so, is there any way to recover threshold detection functionality and integrate the number of clicks over a larger period of time?

      Dear Scott,
      is it possible to have a Zoom call to discuss further?
      Please email your availability to ahmad.atieh@optiwave.com?
