Good news: Our article Lab::Measurement—A portable and extensible framework for controlling lab equipment and conducting measurements was accepted for publication by Computer Physics Communications and is available for download!
The Lab::Measurement software stack is a feature-rich solution for measurement automation and instrument control, which is both lightweight and highly portable to different operating systems. It is actively used by an increasing number of research groups, mostly for experiments in mesoscopic physics, but recently also in particle physics and quantum optics. In many cases it has completely replaced proprietary tools like LabView or Matlab!
The paper also covers the ongoing port of the stack to modern Perl techniques which lead to a considerable improvement of maintainability and extensibility.
