Understanding Image Sensors and Spectrometers: Signal to Noise Ratio
1 December 2020
10 AM PDT / 1 PM EDT
45 minutes, Q & A to follow

Learn why one of the most important parameters when selecting, and implementing a spectrometer is the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). While the definition of SNR varies greatly within the photonics industry, this course defines a commonly used methodology and gives practical examples of the same.

Topics of presentation:
This course will analyze each opto-electronic noise source individually, their origin and impact on spectroscopy measurements. We will also show how optical imperfections, such as stray light, can degrade SNR. Apply SNR to absorption spectra, showing its importance yet often misinterpreted findings.

Engineers and scientists who want to directly compare manufacturers and technology platforms will benefit from this course.
