The experimentalist’s workhorse for the time domain is the oscilloscope. For the frequency domain, it is the spectrum analyzer. I cannot imagine life as an experimentalist without a spectrum analyzer!

I will present the basics of the two main types of spectrum analyzer that allow experimentalists to determine the signal and the noise components in their data. Along the way we’ll talk about the concept of "bandwidth", something that always (yes, always!) is a fundamental factor limiting whether a quantity you want to measure can, in fact, be measured at all under the circumstances of your experiment.
