Demonstrating Poisson Statistics.
Vetterling, William T.
American Journal of Physics, v48 n5 p342-44 May 1980
Describes an apparatus that offers a very lucid demonstration of Poisson statistics as applied to electrical currents, and the manner in which such statistics account for shot noise when applied to macroscopic currents. The experiment described is intended for undergraduate physics students. (HM)
