I am looking for a document or research articles classifying physical or chemical measurements (or perhaps better means of measurement) according to the reference statistical distribution and properties they have.
Example of questions studied would be
What kind of weight balance equipment, technology and procedure have the most gaussian behavior? In what order scale range?
What is the typical distribution of error in a spectroscopic ray analyzer?
What is the typical distribution of an amperemeter, a voltmeter, etc.?
What are the noise distributions of the various diode technologies, etc.?
I am particularly interested by hints of "exotical" distributions in some common apparatus.
