RE: Any scope photos of different resistors...

"Excess noise" is simply everything else beyond the (4kTRB)^1/2 thermal noise voltage.

It's just of a way of thinking about noise and keeping score. You can't avoid the thermal noise but you can work on the noise in "excess" of that such as the crud from micro-arcs in carbon comp. resistors.
