Sensor Characterization and Control

on 25.05.2020 at 08:00 by kivanc on Blog of Kivanç Esat
Sensors come with different flavors. They can be inertial devices for motion detection; can be based on photosensitive materials; can be absorbing surrounding molecules to detect their concentration, and so on. Developments in micromachining and micro/nanoelectromechanical system (MEMS/NEMS) technologies lead to miniaturization and low power consumption. Hence, multiple sensors […]

How to reduce noise floor and improve SNR by employing cross-correlation techniques

on 19.05.2020 at 15:30 by Jithesh Srinivas on Blog of Jithesh Srinivas
Ultra-sensitive voltage measurements is a crucial requirement for applications such as quantum device characterization [1]. Weak signals become easily obscured by thermal noise, especially that coming from the measurement apparatus; this increases the noise floor [2] and determines a lower […]
