    The challenge we take up in this fourth installment in a series of tutorials in instrumentation and measurement is to consider how to make a sensor work in a measurement system. Signal conditioning broadly includes the steps needed to make the sensor an active part of a measurement system by providing excitation, if required, and then performing the preliminary actions needed to obtain a signal th...

    The concept of networks of distributed sensors is a popular topic of research. Currently, many systems focus on environmental monitoring applications. Homeland security and the potential for nuclear weapons or dirty bombs has necessitated another type of environmental monitoring, that for radioisotopes. Select traffic points in the United States may be monitored for illicit isotopes by commerciall... View full abstract»

    Dan Rugar at IBM used magnetic resonance force microscope (MRFM) technology in the summer of 2004 to detect the signal from a single electron spin (Rugar et al., 2004). This marked a turning point for microscopy since John Sidles invented the MRFM method in the early 1990s (Sidles, 1991). MRFM fills one of the most fundamental gaps in the tools we have for determining the structure of systems and ... View full abstract»
