In experimental sciences, random processes often place a fundamental limit on the achievable resolution. A well known example is the Johnson noise voltage across a resistor. In this paper, we describe the observation of temperature fluctuations in a thermometer caused by the random transfer of heat in and out of it. This process places a fundamental limit… CONTINUE READING
