Re: QE not the issue for noise

Reducing noise has little to do with QE, and lots to do with the
engineering of the sensor and readout electionics.

Most images are dominated by shot noise (photon counting noise). Getting more photons to register is the only way to reduce that and there are only two methods for that - increasing microlens aperture area and increasing overall QE.
