Abstract

We study the statistical properties of recordings that contain time-dependent positions of a bead trapped in optical tweezers. Analysis of such a time series indicates that the commonly accepted model, i.e., the autoregressive process of first-order, is not sufficient to fit the data. We show the presence of a first-order moving average part in the dynamical model of the system. We explain the origin of this part as an influence of the high-frequency CCD camera on the measurements. We show that this influence evidently depends on the applied exposure time. The proposed autoregressive moving average model appears to reflect perfectly all statistical features of the high-frequency recording data.
