Paper Abstract

In this survey at first the general figures of merit of solid-state sensors as sensitivity, dynamic range and noise equivalent signal are defined. With this the main phenomenological parameters as tangential sensitivity, noise figure, noise temperature, noise resistance is treated, and the usefulness of the tangential sensitivity is emphasized. The difference between the phenomenological parameters and the physical noise is pointed out with examples. Finally the basic noise aspects of some often used classical sensor elements as resistance; Hall-plate and diode are reviewed.
