Abstract
We propose a method to determine the switching rates of a random telegraph signal. We apply digital low pass filtering with varying bandwidths to the raw signal, evaluate the cumulants of the resulting distributions, and compare them with the analytical prediction. This technique is useful in the case of a slow detector with response time comparable to the time interval between the switching events. We demonstrate the efficiency of this method by analyzing random telegraph signals generated by individual charge tunneling events in metallic single-electron transistors.
