  • Validity of calibration and test data: application of ISO/IEC Guide 25 (EN 45001) or the ISO 9000 series

    Publication Year: 1995, Page(s):211 - 215

    An indiscriminate insistence upon compliance with the ISO 9000 series standards on quality systems has gained such momentum that some organisations have convinced themselves mistakenly that certification to ISO 9002, in particular, is sufficient for the effective operation of a calibration or test laboratory and will ensure that the calibration or test data it generates is valid. This article expl... View full abstract»

    For pt.I see ibid., vol.2, no.6, p.273-80 (1993). Alternative ideas about what is meant by the `electromagnetic field' are explored further, following on from the previous article. It is suggested that a change in view may help to reduce the difficulties which many engineers have in understanding the operating principles of simple electromagnetic devices. Of particular interest here are the condit... View full abstract»

  • The evolution of quality control standards for calibration systems over the past thirty years

    Publication Year: 1995, Page(s):196 - 200

    Over the years, many organisations have dealt with the problem of quality assurance calibration requirements and accreditation. Documentation produced by these organisations has established a firm realisation of the various requirements for a comprehensive calibration system. This paper describes the history of such documentation and the accreditation authorities View full abstract»

  • Equipment calibration and quality control

    Publication Year: 1995, Page(s):207 - 210
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (284 KB)

    Any company that relies on any form of inspection, measuring or test equipment for evaluation or comparison of their finished product must in practice have some form of control over that equipment. This control is often very important and forms a complete section in most of the standards concerned with the quality assurance of a product or service. This article seeks to identify some of the requir... View full abstract»

  • Scanning confocal near-infra-red microscopy: a new microscopy technique for three-dimensional histopathology

    Publication Year: 1995, Page(s):223 - 230
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (468 KB)

    To image microstructures within tissue in detail using conventional light microscopy it is necessary to process the tissue and obtain thin (≈5 μm) physical sections by using destructive physical sectioning techniques. This article describes a microscopy technique, using near-infra-red light (700-1500 nm) as the source, which is able to image thin sections of thick-tissue specimens nondestruc...

  • The MATLAB environment for teaching and research in adaptive signal processing and spectral estimation

    Publication Year: 1995, Page(s):217 - 221
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (272 KB)

    The sophisticated concepts which underlie adaptive signal processing and spectral estimation are best appreciated by experimentation. MATLAB provides an ideal environment for such work, in that it facilitates rapid code development and refinement, together with immediate visual display. The development of MATLAB-based assignments for the teaching of adaptive signal processing and spectral estimati... View full abstract»
