The only reason they are able to detect the signal at all is because the light from the laser is monochromatic, but its not just a matter of looking for these photons and timing their arrival. The pulses are about 2cm deep, and even when detected, there is no way to determine where in the pulse the detected photon is - the leading edge, the trailing edge or somewhere in between. 



So when a sufficient large number of photons have been counted, the front and back end of the pulse can be determined? And thereby increase the accuracy of the measurement?
Well, it is like this: The truth doesn't need insults. Insults are the refuge of a darkened mind, a mind that refuses to open and see. Foul language can't outcompete knowledge. And knowledge is the result of education. Education is the result of the wish to know more, not less.

Add to the list of things Hunchback doesn't understand: the inverse square law.
Maybe because he follows an inverse square law: the closer you look, the dimmer he appears.
Didn't he turn out to have the actual qualifications he claimed? I have some dim memory that somebody checked, although I have not spent any time on his ramblings for years (too much effort for no return).

He routinely trots out a paper, which is supposed to be a diploma from some french engineering school. But it is of so poor quality, it might as well have been typed on a C64 and then printed on a Commodore 801.

The school is legit, but I doubt the diploma is.

Didn't someone check that out ages ago and it is legit?

Or have the memory worms struck again?
