    Over the last seven decades, the electronics industry has advanced at a remarkable rate. We naturally tend to think about how far our society has advanced with all the new technologies that are available today. When we think about the future, our imaginations become the limitations of our technological advancements. Current observations of the electronics market show rapid turnover, and future pre...

    SRNL has developed a stand-alone radiation monitoring system utilizing a Suite B-based, ultra secure, short range wireless sensor network. While the radiation sensor is specific to nuclear facilities, the short range wireless sensor network is adaptable to other applications as well to those which require high reliability with ultra secure protection of the wireless data network.

    In this paper, the Wireless Highway Addressable Remote Transducer (WirelessHART, WH) Protocol which has evolved from the HART Protocol is presented. It is one of the most prominent industrial wireless mesh network communications protocols for process automation applications. We describe how the protocol copes with RF link difficulties. A case study of the network behavior is given using a previous... View full abstract»

    Adermoscope is a diagnostic device that can image the skin in situ and is used for early diagnosis of melanoma and pigmented skin lesions. In this paper, we describe the design and construction of a cross-polarized dermoscope including the illumination evaluation, imaging design, and the mechanical setup. By using the cross-polarization dermoscope, specular reflection from the superficial layer of... View full abstract»

    This tutorial is the first article in a two-part series on the challenges of installing instrumentation in the wild. Because of the large variety of physical, chemical, and biological assaults to which the instrumentation may be subjected, we divided the material between two issues of the magazine. In this issue, we introduce problems with physical extremes and attacks by insects, critters, and hu... View full abstract»

    The main goal of this column was to describe how to optimize the excitation coil. In this column, the authors describe how to optimize the measurement algorithm. We explain the necessary quantitative power that the flowmeter coil has to receive to be able to realize a given measurement uncertainty with respect to analog and digital processing of the flow signals.

    Atomic clocks fundamentally altered the way that time is measured and kept. Before atomic clocks, the second was defined by dividing astronomical events, such as the solar day or the tropical year, into smaller parts. This changed in 1967, when the second was redefined as the duration of 9,192,631,770 energy transitions of the cesium atom [1]. The new definition meant that seconds were now measure...

    The story of length is a good example of the general progress of science: New experiments verify existing theories, or else they call forth new ones. In the world of standards, progress toward the twin goals of ever-smaller uncertainty and ever-wider application may occasionally falter, but over time, it will move forward. People, in general, don't like the concepts of uncertainty or error, especi... View full abstract»
