FemtoDAQ LV-2 is an ideal instrument for researchers, engineers, educators, and students.
FemtoDAQ instruments support particle physics experiments and measurement systems in research, education and industry. The instruments are easy to use with an excellent price / performance ratio.
An illustrative example is presented and discussed on the Cosmic Ray Net website. You will find many details there, such as FemtoDAQ data analysis and techniques of random background reduction. Please have a look!
What can you do with a FemtoDAQ LV-2?
- Deploy the handheld FemtoDAQ anywhere:
on a desktop, on a lab bench, or remotely on a network.
- Capture waveforms, generate histograms, and record event files.
- Develop data acquisition and process control software
in programming languages such as Python or C.
- Gather slow control data and drive actuators using SPI or I²C.
- Use logic signals for triggering.
- Set it up as a standalone DAQ workstation
by attaching a mouse, keyboard, and video display to the instrument.
- Test your detectors using a simple, easy to use, and complete data acquisition system.
- Perform pilot experiments without engaging DAQ support personnel.
- During "big experiments" monitor the performance of vital signals in real time.
- Distribute FemtoDAQ units throughout the beam control or accelerator control networks.
- Gather the data from remote beam monitor detectors and slow control sensors.
- Drive the actuators with FemtoDAQ using the SPI and I2C busses.
- Develop demonstrations and table top experiments for your students.
- Teach the principles of pulse processing, digital filtering, and noise reduction.
- Educate students about modern data acquisition and analysis.
- Perform experiments in the field of nuclear physics, particle physics, and general signal processing.
- Collect data files, analyze data, develop understanding of detector operation.
- Have fun!
FemtoDAQ development was supported by the Department of Energy Office of Science (Nuclear Physics) under the SBIR-STTR grant number DE-SC0013144.
