|Course Title||PHY - Non-Credit: Noise Reduction Techniques|
|Year of Study||1st year, 2nd year, 3rd year, 4th year|
|Time and Location||
Date and location based on student demand and room availability.
This 1-1/2 hour seminar is for those who want to reduce the amount of
noise in their apparatus and data. Math is kept to a minimum. Instead
we focus on practical principals and techniques to reduce system noise
and maximize your signal to noise ratio (SNR) at the system level.
Minimizing noise is very situation dependent so it's not possible to
give step by step instructions on how to reduce noise but this seminar
will provide principles that can be applied to improve your SNR.
There is a nominal fee to cover the cost of printed materials and instruction time.
- What is noise and how is it quantified?
- Where does noise come from?
- How does noise propagate and what can I do to stop it?
- Field and Lab wiring practices
- Shielding and Grounding
- Filtering and post-processing
