Signal-to-noise ratio

Description

The signal to noise ratio is the ratio of the power of the signal to that of the noise. For example, in fluorimetry it would be the ratio of the square of the fluorescence intensity to the square of the intensity of the background noise.

Abbreviation: S/N


MitoPedia methods: Fluorometry, Spectrophotometry
