Limits to Noise reduction

I came across this thread, and would like to reference it here, as it obviously impacts the main subject under discussion.

I have linked to a post which seems to convey the main thrust, but the whole thread is interesting - apparently, even the very expensive astronomical sensors are not much better for noise, without using exotic technology - we are very close to real physical limits.

For those who may not be aware, noise considerations are often thelimiting thing for how small you can make your pixels, diffraction issues aside.
