White Paper: Pixel Size and Shot Noise

A White Paper covering the impact of pixel size and shot noise on imaging sensors. Take a dive into the mathematics behind a sensor’s dynamic range in terms of its read noise and Full Well Capacity. Understand how smaller pixels inherently cannot achieve an advantage over larger pixels due to shot noise.
