Subject: Electron to Counts conversion efficiency 

Using some of the old data from James (attached below), I calculated the CCD conversion efficiency (CE) from electrons to bits (Counts).

Number of electrons(Ne) = QE*Number of Photons(Np)

noiseE = sqrt(Ne);

Number of Counts (NCo)= CE*Ne

Noise in Counts (noiseCo)= CE*sqrt(Ne)

noiseCo = sqrt(CE * NCo)

log(CE) = 2*noiseCo - NCo

Therefore CE = 10.0^(2*noiseCo - NCo)

From James's data on the intensity noise in the CCD, CE = 0.0269


Using this function, I did the same analysis of the upper-left 200x200 pixels over all 200 images:
