Measurement Science and Technology is a journal published by Institute of Physics Publishing. It is an international journal publishing articles in the areas of measurement, instrumentation and sensor technology in physics, chemistry, biology, engineering and the environmental life sciences, from inception to commercial exploitation. Its scope includes The journal publishes different article types including Review Articles , Papers, Design Notes and Rapid Communications. The journal also publishes a number of special topical features and issues each year. The journal is published monthly with articles being published online in advance of the printed version. The editor-in-chief is David Birch, a Professor of Photophysics in the Department of Physics at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow and co-founder of the University s Centre for Molecular Nanometrology and Femtosecond Research Centre (FRC). The journal had an Impact factor of 1.350 for 2010 according to Journal Citation Reports. The Institute of Physics was founded in 1919 and in 1923 the Institute launched the Journal of Scientific Instruments, dealing with methods of measurement and the theory, construction and use of

Liquid breathing moves a step closer thanks to measurement study

Liquid ventilation –breathing a liquid instead of air – has long been the stuff of science fiction, and despite experimental clinical use, its potential for treating severe pulmonary or cardiac trauma, and use in deep ...

Researchers grow cyberforests to predict climate change

It can take Mother Nature 1,000 years to grow a forest. But Nikolay Strigul, assistant professor of mathematics and statistics at Washington State University Vancouver, can grow one on a computer in three weeks.

Magnetic hyperthermia, an auxiliary tool in cancer treatments

Hyperthermia (increase in body temperature) has been used for centuries to combat tumours and reduce their effects. The aim of research by the physicist Eneko Garaio is hyperthermia but using a different system (magnetic ...

NIST tests underscore potential hazards of green laser pointers

Using a low-cost apparatus designed to quickly and accurately measure the properties of handheld laser devices, National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) researchers tested 122 laser pointers and found that nearly ...

Platform safety on the radar for researchers

Systems used to detect aircraft and ships could soon be fitted in train stations to quickly identify objects – or even people – that have fallen on the tracks, preventing serious accidents and reducing delays that ...
