<emphasis role="bold">Introduction</emphasis> In earlier chapters we investigated techniques for optimizing the detection sensitivity of weak optical signals and for achieving high repeatability of measurements of relatively strong signals. The primary technical difficulties addressed were, respectively, noise and stability, which we treated as operating independently. Here we will look at an important measurement situation where the two errors are strongly coupled. This concerns the performance of an instrument…
