Sensitivity Model for a detector

  1. Sep 11, 2006 #1
    hello,
    I have to make a sensitivity model for a near infra red detector and I need help. I have so far done radiometric calculations taking into account noise, due to dark current, sky background, etc and calculated the minimum signal intensity i need. However, i have a few blocks:
    I need to determine how strong my spectral line needs to be given that i am actually trying to detect it in an explosion (similar to detectng H2 lines in an explosion using near IR?) How do you not see the explosion and just see your H2 lines???
    thanks
