1. Our new Nature, Sci. Rep. paper Continuous compressed sensing of inelastic and quasielastic Helium Atom Scattering spectra on continuous/infinite-dimensional compressed sensing in surface scattering is now published. This is the first time compressed sensing is used in Helium Atom Scattering and the first time infinite-dimensional compressed sensing is implemented with real data (see the papers Generalized Sampling and Infinite Dimensional Compressed Sensing and Breaking the coherence barrier: A new theory for compressed sensing where the theoretical ideas were launched).  

2. Siemens validated in practice, using a modified MRI machine, the asymptotic sparsity, asymptotic incoherence and high resolution concepts introduced by our work (see Breaking the coherence barrier: A new theory for compressed sensing and also On asymptotic structure in compressed sensing). From their conclusion:

“[...] The image resolution has been greatly improved [...]. Current results practically demonstrated that it is possible to break the coherence barrier by increasing the spatial resolution in MR acquisitions. This likewise implies that the full potential of the compressed sensing is unleashed only if asymptotic sparsity and asymptotic incoherence is achieved.”

Their work Novel Sampling Strategies for Sparse MR Image Reconstruction was published in May 2014 in the Proceedings of the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine.

The major effects and benefits of these concepts are summarised on Page 4 of our latest work On asymptotic structure in compressed sensing, which also includes a large number of example experiments.
