The data processing group is specialized on cutting-edge solutions for data acquisition, data management and data analysis for scientific experiments. The group is an active member of various international scientific collaborations.
Expert Group Data Processing (PDV)
The activities of the group focus on:
· Flexible „slow control“ systems
For automation tasks PC-based measurement and control systems combined with flexible programming in LabView are used. Standard interfaces like OPC, web services or SQL databases provide easy integration in the data acquisition and management systems.
· Fast data acquisition for detectors in physics
The graphical data acquisition system ORCA has been developed at the universities of Washington and North Carolina for detectors in particle physics. The readout system is used for our FPGA-based DAQ electronics within the Karlsruhe Neutrino Experiment KATRIN or the dark matter experiment Edelweiss.
· Data management with the „Advanced Data Extraction Infrastructure (ADEI)“
The ADEI system is designed to provide an easy, referencable, world-wide access to the complete data of an experiment. ADEI combines uniform access by its programming interface and web data portal to international collaborations. It is modular to integrate data from very different sources.
The high data rates of modern pixel detectors and advanced algorithms in image processing are demanding for current data acquisition systems. The data processing group is developing solutions to use graphic processors to support classical acquisition systems with online monitoring and analysis for very high data rates.
