General Signal and Noise references:
- Be able to explain what the S/N ratio represents; know how to calculate it, and how the relative ratio can be increased.
- Know the five types of noise and characteristics in which to reduce noise.
- Discuss ways to improve the S/N ratio both via analog and digital signal processing. Be able to use the ensemble averaging formula to determine the number of scans needed to improve the S/N ratio by a known numerical amount.
- Be able to discuss potential problems associated with signal processing.
