Many physical quantities are actually quantized by physical entities. Examples of fields where this limitation applies include electronics (due to electrons), optics (due to photons), biology (due to DNA), and chemistry (due to molecules). This is sometimes known as the "quantum noise limit" of systems in those fields. This is a different manifestation of "quantization error," in which theoretical models may be analog but physically occurs digitally. Around the quantum limit, the distinction between analog and digital quantities vanishes.

Famous quotes containing the word fields:
“Leave your worry on the doorstep.”
—Dorothy Fields (19041974)
“Forget about the precious sight
of my lovers face
that steals away my heart.
Just seeing the borders
of the fields on the borders
of her village
gives me instant joy.”
