Shot noise or Poisson noise is a type of noise which can be modeled by a Poisson process.
In electronics shot noise originates from the discrete nature of electric charge. Shot noise also occurs in photon counting in optical devices, where shot noise is associated with the particle nature of light.
I would like to arrive at the following expression for the quantity ##o_{\ell}## ( with "DM" for Dark Matter ):
##o_{\ell}=b_{s p}^2 C_{\ell}^{D M}+B_{s p}##
with Poisson noise ##B_{s p}=\frac{1}{\bar{n}}(\bar{n}## being the average number of galaxies observed). the index "sp" is for spectro...
The error on photometric galaxy clustering under the form of covariance which is actually a standard deviation expression for a fixed multipole ##\ell## :
##
\sigma_{C, i j}^{A B}(\ell)=\Delta C_{i j}^{A B}(\ell)=\sqrt{\frac{2}{(2 \ell+1) f_{\mathrm{sky}} \Delta \ell}}\left[C_{i j}^{A...
I have the following expression for an error on a Cℓ :
##\sigma(C_{\ell,X})=\sqrt{\dfrac{2}{(2 \ell+1)\Delta\ell \,f_{\mathrm{sky}}}}\left[C_{\ell,X}+N_{X}(\ell)\right]##
where ##X## corresponds to spectroscopic/photometric shot noise and with ##\Delta\ell## is the bin width between 2 values...
Hello,
I would like to know the right expression for the expression of variance of Shot noise in spectroscopic probe.
Sometimes, I saw ##\sigma_{SN,sp}^{2} = 1/n_{sp}## with ##n_{sp}## the average density of galaxies, whereas my tutor tells me that ##\sigma_{SN,sp}^{2} = 1/n_{sp}^{2}## , so I...
My setup:
I have the an LED (LED370E) in front of a photodiode (S12915-16R). The photodiode is connected to an ADC (DT5751) which has a counting functionality. The way it works is that it counts how many times the signal goes above a certain threshold and makes a histogram out of it.
I know...
Hello, new poster,
I am trying to do a fairly simple, but non-standard, environmental noise model run for a shooting range.
The standard against which noise from the shooting range is to be compared is the Shot Noise Level (SNL). SNL is defined as the logarithmic average of the 25 highest...
Hello all,
So I am working on a problem where I need to characterize the shot noise in double quantum dots. My professor suggested to me that we can estimate the tunnel times from shot noise calculations. Can anyone give me any insight into this?
Moreover, can anyone provide me any numerical...
Not really sure where this belongs... But here goes:
If you illuminate a photo diode it generates a current because electrons are being emitted from its cathode. Since each emission is however an independent stochastic process the output current will be subject to fluctuations, which can be...
I frequently see the following circuit being used as a noise generator:
... where the transistors are basic npn bipolar transistors.
Some authors attribute the noise to shot noise while others say it is avalanche noise.
How do I determine which is correct?

Citizens of Physicsforums.
I would greatly appreciate your advice.
I've been wrestling with a pesky noisy phototransistor for quite a long time, and am at wit's end.
The sensor is being used to transuce an audio signal in the 1-5kHz range. Unfortunately the shot noise is introducing...
Hi
I have stumpled upon the following expression for the correlation function of the photocurrent shot noise for a photodiode
<\delta i(t)\delta i(t+\tau)> = \frac{e^2\eta}{h\nu}P\delta(\tau)
where η is the quantum efficiency and P the power in the signal. δ(τ) denotes the Dirac delta, which...
I've been having some trouble modeling shot noise for a photomultiplier tube on Mathematica - I know that I have to use a random number generator and the Poisson distribution to do it, but I'm having trouble synthesizing everything. (There are many things I'm going to leave just as parameters...
I am a bit confused over the frequency term that appears in Johnson and Shot noise formulae. What is this term?
Is it bandwidth? Of what? In relation to say a photodiode, is it the range of frequencies being detected?
And how would this relate to say a DC circuit which no frequency terms...
A battery of emf 9V, and negligible internal resistance, has a 100Kohm resistor connected across its terminals. What are the values of johnson and shot noise at a temperature of 20*C if the measurement bandwidth is 10KHz?
At what temperature would the johnson and shot noise contributions to...
hello
well I have 2 vectors in MATLAB each representing a signal+shot noise. I have to add them. Can anyone tell me what the signal noise ratio will be when they are added?
thanks MB
I am reading about galaxy surveys.
I want to know what is shot noise ? how we estimate it
into real and Fourier space ? I am basically reading
astro-ph/0503603 & astro-ph/0503604. I am not able to solve exercise 4, 5, 6.
I will be thankful, if anybody can provide me some reference.
