"FSMLabs RTLinux is widely used in scientific research. In this project, University of Vermont researchers Dave Warshaw and Joe Patlak make use of one of the most basic features of RTCore--an interrupt-driven data acquisition routine that performs feedback control, takes commands from applications running on Linux, and passes data back to the non-real-time programs in user space. What is remarkable about Warshaw and Patlak's experiments, though, is that they use RTLinux to make laser light manipulate individual molecules..."
