What is the millivolt measurement? RMS? Peak-to-peak? — Omegatron 20:59, 14 March 2007 (UTC)
I fully agree. In electronics the main usage of sensitivity is for a radio. It would be useful to discuss which is the relationship between sensitivity and attenuation (i.e. given a source and an homogeneous medium which is the distance up to which a radio receiver with a given sensitivity can be used).

- I would like to note that -- despite claims on this and the responsivity page -- transducer responsivity is still widely (read: almost exclusively) called "transducer sensitivity." In fact, all this page does is mention receiver sensitivity, claim that responsivity is mistakenly called sensitivity, then give a general introduction to transducer responsivity anyway. It would be best to Just have this page stub for both Sensitivity (radio receiver) and Responsivity, while doing a better job of clarifying which is which. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 21:34, 26 May 2009 (UTC)
I share the opinion of Kaajakari and Korvink that sensitivity is the change in output divided by change in input and is the same as responsivity. Further they write that resolution is the minimum signal which can be detected, which is defined here as sensitivity. I think nearly every good scientific book think the same way and I have never read something different.
