In certain dynamical systems, the addition of noise can assist the detection of a signal and not degrade it as normally expected. This is possible via a phenomenon termed stochastic resonance (SR), where the response of a nonlinear system to a subthreshold periodic input signal is optimal for some non-zero value of noise intensity. We investigate the SR phenomenon in several circuits and systems. Although SR occurs in many disciplines, the sinusoidal signal by itself is not information bearing… CONTINUE READING
