Researchers from the Georgia Tech Research Institute and Georgia Tech's School of Electrical and Computer Engineering are teaming up with Flowers Bakery in Villa Rica, GA to construct the world's perfect sandwich bun. A computer imaging system will be used to automate bun inspection and data generation. In the second phase, researchers will find new ways to combat heat and humidity disturbances found in an oven, which can reduce bun quality. For more information, go to http://rbi.ims.ca/3851-548.
University of Southampton researchers have come up with a way to 3D print transparent optical fibers like those used in fiber-optic telecommunications cables, potentially boosting frequency and reducing loss.
