In such experiments, even if classical noise has been reduced, two quantum-noise sources are still present: quantum shot noise (QSN) and quantum radiation pressure noise (QRPN).

Compound bows continue to evolve, with the advances usually being geared towards creating faster and lighter bows, though huge advances have also brought us increased accuracy and vast reductions in shot noise.
Wavelets allowed the researchers to increase the resolution of FRET results by reducing shot noise - distortion at a particular frequency - from the data.

The two most often used classes of spatial Cox point processes are the log Gaussian Cox processes (Moller et al, 1998) and the shot noise Cox processes (Moller, 2003).
If ever along the way she shows some fearfulness, don't panic; simply let her run a while without a shot noise so she forgets about it, then back up a few steps, have a shot fired and quit for the day.
The primary signal independent noise mechanisms in SWIR focal plane arrays are the shot noise generated by the dark current and the noise caused by the readout integrated circuit.
The 90 or so contributions fall into general topics such as theoretical and experimental frontiers in noise and fluctuations, enhanced and suppressed shot noise, noise and coherence, the constructive role of noise, noise in biological systems, and noise in complex systems and non-Gaussian fluctuations.
