Instrumentation and Measurement in Central and Eastern Europe

N

owadays, Instrumentation and Measurement
(I&M) play a very important role in all science domains and industry. The involved researchers
around the world from universities, metrology institutes, and
industry work on the development of new accurate measurement techniques, very low uncertainty instruments, and smart
sensors and the evaluation of their performances. Also, current measurement standards are analyzed and improved.
New solutions for sensing and measurement related to challenges in biomedicine, environment, and food production
are developed. Special attention is given to the educational
aspect. Thus, the students should learn about the recent developments in the I&M field to gain skills in their application. In
this special issue of the I&M Magazine, eight papers from researchers in Central and Eastern Europe (IEEE Region 8) were
invited. These papers deal with the above I&M aspects.
The paper "Present and Future of High-Temperature Superconductor Quantum-Based Voltage Standards" by A. M.
Klushin et al. is related to quantum-based voltage standards
fabricated using the high-temperature superconductors technology. The state-of-the-art of Josephson junctions for these
quantum-based voltage standards is briefly presented. Also,
two promising technologies, which are the bicrystal and Focused Helium-Ion Beam junctions, are thoroughly described.
The paper "Practical Aspects of a Pulse Generator Calibration" by M. Hudlicˇka et al. is focused on the calibration of a
pulse generator. Different calibration methods are thoroughly
described and hints for the application of these methods are
provided.
The paper "I&M Applications for Educational Purposes"
by R. Ionel et al. presents four applications developed as support for I&M teaching activities. These applications, which
deal with important aspects in modern measurements, are the
following: electronic circuit testing via Boundary Scan technology, an integration between an off-the-shelf LCR meter and
Flying Probe equipment, online visualization of the measurement results provided by a MEMS, and phasor measurements.
The paper "Underwater Bioinspired Sensing: New Opportunities to Improve Environmental Monitoring" by J.A.

April 2020	

Tuhtan et al. presents an example of how a standardized
bioinspired sensor can be used to improve environmental
monitoring. In the considered example, fish-like underwater
bioinspired sensing is used to improve the efficiency of monitoring upstream migration.
The paper "How Thirsty the Crops Are: Emerging Instrumentation for Plant-Based Field Measurement of Water Stress"
by D. Oletic and V. Bilas provides an overview of state-of-theart in measurements of common plant-hydraulic quantities,
open challenges, and research opportunities. The authors focus on novel, emerging methods showing potential for field
application in precision irrigation.
The paper "Beyond Pure Sensing-IEEE 21450 in Digitalization of the Development Cycle of Smart Transducers" by
T. Mitterer and H. Zangl is related to the use in a given application of the standard transducer electronic datasheet
defined in the IEEE 21450 Standard throughout the design
work-flow. In addition, the datasheet can be used in the
design phase as a standard format to retain and exchange
information.
The paper "Towards Standardization of Electroporation
Devices and Protocols" by A. Cvetkoska et al. refers to electroporators, which are pulse power generators used to provide
electroporation pulses to human cells through electrodes.
The characteristics of electroporation applications and used
equipment are described and compared. Also, guidelines for
the proper design of electroporators and minimal requirements for their safe and efficient use in medical applications
are given.
The paper "Inverse Algorithms-Powerful Tools to Improve
Measurement Systems" by T. Dabóczi deals with the inverse
algorithms used to counteract the imperfectness of sensors
and measuring channels and the shortage of available information. Some examples in which these algorithms are used to
solve different inverse problems are presented.
We hope that the papers presented in this special issue are
interesting and useful for the magazine readers. We would like
to thank all of the authors for their contributions and the Editorial Board of the I&M Magazine for their support.
