Antenna Basics

The antenna is the most intrinsic component of all RF systems, yet the principles of antenna design and wave propagation are rarely discussed outside the entry level engineering classes. Rohde & Schwarz has developed an educational white paper on Antenna Basics to reteach the basic principles in a simplified manner.

Will selfies become the primary mode of authentication?

This week's Question: MasterCard has tested facial biometrics for payment authentication and has now begun rolling out its MasterCard Identity Check, or "selfie pay," to a greater number of users. The biometric authentication app is available throughout Europe, including Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Hungary, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, and the UK. MasterCard’s Identity Check app also supports fingerprint biometrics, offering customers a choice of authenticating a mobile payment with either their face or finger at the point of purchase. What do you think?

Product of the Month: October 2016

National Instruments, Austin, TX, announced LabVIEW 2016 system design software that introduces new channel wires to simplify complex communication between parallel sections of code. Available on both desktop and real-time versions of LabVIEW, the channel wire method helps improve code readability and reduces development time. The software features enhanced interoperability with Python and third-party devices. Five add-ons are now supported with LabVIEW 64-bit that enable users to harness all the memory of an operating system when developing and debugging applications. The software offers an Instrument Driver Network that supports 500 new instrument control drivers, as well as increased integration with open-source platforms such as Linux and Eclipse.For Free Info Visit http://info.hotims.com/61066-120

Pumped Two Phase Cooling: The Advanced Thermal Management Solution for Emerging High Power Electronics Applications

As the demand for higher power in lighter, smaller packages continues to increase, so does the need for a more advanced thermal management solution. Designs that once utilized the cooling capabilities of a pumped liquid system have now surpassed their failure threshold.

Transparent Skull Implant Could Replace Craniotomy

An illustration showing how the Window to the Brain transparent brain implant created by UC Riverside researchers would work. (Credit: UC San Diego) Researchers from several US and Mexican institutions are developing a transparent skull implant that will allow doctors to deliver laser-based treatments to the brain on demand and on a recurring basis without the need for surgeons to open up the skull, a highly invasive procedure called a craniotomy. The “Window to the Brain” would provide new treatment options for patients with life-threatening neurological disorders, including brain cancers, traumatic brain injuries, neurodegenerative diseases, and stroke.

New “4D” MRI Technique Identifies Stroke Risk

4D flow CMR can be employed to measure in-vivo 3D blood flow dynamics in the heart and atria. Derived flow stasis maps in the left atrium and left atrial appendage are a novel concept to visualize and quantify regions with low flow, known to cause clot formation and risk for stroke. (Credit: Northwestern) A new imaging technique has been developed that can help predict who is most at risk for stroke. This breakthrough could lead to better treatment and outcomes for patients with atrial fibrillation. The cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging test can detect the blood’s velocity through the heart and body. Called “atrial 4D flow CMR,” the technique is noninvasive and does not require contrast agents.

Visible-Light-Based Imaging for Medical Devices

In experiments, the researchers fired a laser beam through a mask — a thick sheet of plastic with slits cut through it in a certain configuration, such as the letter A — and then through a 1.5-cm “tissue phantom,” a slab of material designed to mimic the optical properties of human tissue for purposes of calibrating imaging systems. Light scattered by the tissue phantom was then collected by a high-speed camera, which could measure the light’s time of arrival. (Credit: Camera Culture Group/MIT) MIT researchers have developed a technique for recovering visual information from light that has scattered because of interactions with the environment — such as passing through human tissue. The technique could lead to medical imaging systems that use visible light, which carries much more information than X-rays or ultrasound waves.
