Cold Molecule experiments Data Acquisition system

Cold Molecules data acquisition – KouDA


The data acquisition system used by the CMI group and cold-molecules experiment at the FHI Berlin.

Program suite


The data acquisition suite currently consists of the following separate programs:
  • kouda: The main executable. This is what you typically use to control your experiment and acquire data.

  • kouda-data: A command-line tool to manually extract data from full file-format HDF5 files.

  • kouda-pressure: A command-line tool to read out the MaxiGauge pressure display. This can nicely be used via the network and does not interfere with the main program.
