For decades now, the medical industry has been automating to improve throughput, yield, and performance of medical devices. Slide scanning, for example, has been automated to reduce the time required to process each sample and collect test data. Today, slide scanning is used in a variety of applications including cancer screening, cytometry, and cellometry. These systems utilize cameras to capture hundreds and even thousands of images of a single sample for future review, feature recognition, detection, or identification. The technologies used to execute these tasks are rapidly evolving and always changing. One recent development, motivated largely by the consumer peripheral market, promises to have a positive impact on the price-performance ratio of automated slide scanning solutions.

Low-Power Quantum Computers
Posted in Electronics & Computers, Power Management, Computers, Energy Efficiency, News on Monday, 12 December 2011
By 2017, quantum physics will help reduce the energy consumption of computers and cellular phones by up to a factor of 100. For research and industry, the power consumption of transistors is a key issue. The next step will likely come from tunnel-FET, a technology that takes advantage of a phenomenon referred to as quantum tunneling. At the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland, research is well underway.
