- n. A count of the distributions of photons obtained by counting photoelectric electrons
The CT, on the other hand, points to the low intensity as an indication of nonclassical light which may display even sub-Poissonian photocount statistics and may provide thus an optimized optical communication channel in biological systems within living matter of "optimized" high optical density2.
