The microscope uses a combination of hardware and software-based adaptive optics to reconstruct object image — ScienceDaily

Non-invasive microscopic techniques such as optical coherence microscopy and two-photon microscopy are commonly used for in vivo imaging of living tissues. When light passes through turbid materials such as biological tissues, two types of light are generated: ballistic photons and multiply scattered photons. The ballistic photons travel straight through the object without experiencing any deflection and hence is used to reconstruct the object image. On the other hand, the multiply scattered photons are generated via random deflections as the light passes through the material and show up as speckle noise in the reconstructed image. As the light propagates through increasing distances, the ratio between multiply scattered and ballistic photons increases drastically, thereby obscuring the image information. In addition to the noise generated by the multiply scattered light, optical aberration of ballistic light also causes contrast reduction and image blur during the image reconstruction process.

Bone tissues in particular have numerous

Steam PC Gaming Hardware Survey Shows AMD Ryzen CPUs Continue To Take Share From Intel

AMD Ryzen

AMD versus Intel is sort of a David versus Goliath story, only these days, AMD has armed itself with more than just a slingshot. Zen is the real deal. That is abundantly clear by now, but lest anyone needs reminding, a peek at Steam’s latest hardware survey results for November 2020 show how well AMD’s processors are being received by gamers, as it continues to, uh, chip away at Intel’s share.

I can hear the groans at the pun, but bear with me. The point is, this is a different AMD versus Intel battle than in past years, before Zen came along. AMD for a long time was the also-ran, while Intel dominated the market with better performing CPUs at the high end. But now? The Ryzen 5000 series is an awesome lineup, while the previous generation Ryzen 3000 series still holds its own.

Combined with excellent platform support—X570 and

AWS updates its edge computing solutions with new hardware and Local Zones

AWS today closed out its first re:Invent keynote with a focus on edge computing. The company launched two smaller appliances for its Outpost service, which originally brought AWS as a managed service and appliance right into its customers’ existing data centers in the form of a large rack. Now, the company is launching these smaller versions so that its users can also deploy them in their stores or office locations. These appliances are fully managed by AWS and offer 64 cores of compute, 128GB of memory and 4TB of local NVMe storage.

In addition, the company expanded its set of Local Zones, which are basically small extensions of existing AWS regions that are more expensive to use but offer low-latency access in metro areas. This service launched in Los Angeles in 2019 and starting today, it’s also available in preview in Boston, Houston and Miami. Soon, it’ll expand to

Here’s the hardware you need for a gaming PC around $1,000

I get the chance to review a lot of pre-built gaming desktops and gaming laptops, many of which are not in my usual price range. Though there are plenty of affordable pre-built rigs that can deliver a satisfying gaming experience, the beauty of building your own machine lies in the extensive customization and the ability to cut costs by buying everything separately and putting it together yourself. I did just that a couple of years ago, and while the exact same build is no longer attainable due to new hardware and new prices, you can still build a great gaming PC for around the same price. I’ve collected everything you’ll need right here, and I’ve included some performance results below to help you get an idea of what this PC can do.

The Covid-19 pandemic has been a blessing in disguise for the Indian IT industry.

With businesses going virtual, demand for IT services has shot up, which has led to an uptick in hiring for hardware and software professionals, according to jobs portal Naukri.com. “The IT-sector remains one of the least impacted sectors in terms of hiring from the global pandemic,” Naukri.com said in a report released on Nov. 19.

The sector saw upward month-over-month recovery for job listings on Naukri.com, peaking in September for both hardware (63%) and software roles (20%).

Corsair’s new gaming PC has all the hardware you can’t buy right now

Among other things, 2020 will be remembered as the year of out-of-stock hardware, and that is true whether you’re attempting to build a PC or trying to buy a new console. For PC gamers, the end-around is buying a prebuilt desktop, and Corsair’s new Vengeance a7200 comes with several hard-to-find hardware options.

As such, the Vengeance a7200 is Corsair’s first, and so far only, desktop to offer AMD’s new Ryzen 5000 series, based on Zen 3. Two of the four chips, anyway—Ryzen 7 5800X and Ryzen 9 5900X. Alternatively, there is also an Intel Core i9 10850K option.

For the all-important graphics card, Corsair offers all three SKUs comprising the GeForce RTX 30 series, including the Nvidia RTX 3090, RTX 3080, and RTX 3070. These parts are virtually impossible to find in stock for a DIY build, and that could hold true for the rest of the year. Likewise, Corsair
