Abstract

The extraction of information from the measured correlation function or power spectrum is considered. Of particular importance in this context is the selection of an appropriate model for the physical process involved. We shall discuss the information-content limit on the model complexity and the extent to which any model can be justified. In this context a discussion of experimental artifacts which distort the expected data and can thus invalidate the model will be given. Having chosen some model the accuracy with which the parameters of that model can be established from measurements will be discussed with particular reference to Gaussian-Lorentzian light. We conclude with a set of guidelines to govern the choice of experimental parameters in photodetection spectroscopy experiments.
