electrooculogram (EOG)

Recording of eye movements and eye position provided by the difference in electrical potential between two electrodes placed on the skin on either side of the eye. The EOG consists of two potentials: the standing potential (resting potential, dark phase, dark current) which is evoked by moving the eyes in the dark and originates from the retinal pigment epithelium and the light potential (light rise) which is evoked by moving the eyes in a lighted environment and originates from the photoreceptors. Clinically, the ratio between the light and dark potentials (sometimes also called the Arden index or Arden ratio) is assessed. If that ratio is less than 1.8 it indicates a malfunction of the structures from which the potential originates. The EOG is also used to monitor eye movements (Fig. E3). See Best's disease; fundus flavimaculatus; resting potential of the eye.
Fig. E3 Principle of electrooculography. The eye acts as a dipole in which the anterior pole is positive and the posterior pole is negative. 1. Left gaze; the cornea approaches the electrode near the outer canthus resulting in a positive-going change in the potential difference recorded from it. 2. Right gaze; the cornea approaches the electrode near the inner canthus resulting in a positive-going change in the potential difference recorded from it (A, an AC/DC amplifier)enlarge picture

The photodiode will in fact always be generating a residual radiation current in addition to the dark current, even in the absence of a person's body heat, due to the background environmental radiation.
As the camera is cooled more, the reduction in dark current is less, so you'll have diminishing returns on the benefits.
The primary signal independent noise mechanisms in SWIR focal plane arrays are the shot noise generated by the dark current and the noise caused by the readout integrated circuit.

OmniVision's new proprietary pixel structure diminishes dark current to unnoticeable levels, a key factor in bringing CMOS image quality to CCD levels," said Liu.
The instrument provides instant drift-tree traceable measurements, without waiting for source warm-up or meter dark current compensation.
The built-in picoammeter can resolve currents as low as 10 femtoamps, which supports more precise dark current measurement.
But the dark current produced by some of the damaged pixels on the Hubble camera varied over time in an unpredictable way.
Previous investigations have demonstrated that the quantum efficiency and dark current of existing Mercury Cadmium Telluride (MCT) detectors do not meet the necessary performance requirements at the required operating temperature.

The CIS process enables the customisation of pixels and offers a dark current, low noise and dynamic range for various digital imaging applications.
The chip has anti-blooming protection (to prevent streaks on bright stars), high sensitivity, and low dark current, which is further reduced by a regulated, two-stage thermoelectric cooler that can bring the chip to as much as 35[degrees] C below ambient air temperature.
