References to some older (outdated) software of the CFEL-CMI group and its predecessors

Here's a list of some larger outdated software frameworks and programs. If you are interested in any of these for good (scientific) purposes, please contact me by email for possibilities of obtaining the code.

Cold Molecules data acquisition – KouDA

A data acquisition system formerly 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.

Coldmol calculations and programming library

The libcoldmol package provides basic routines for the simulation and data acquisition tasks performed in the cold-molecules research. The library provides all code necessary to perform timesequence and trajectory calculations and some support routines for the data acquisition program KouDA. libcoldmol is written in C++. Libcoldmol provides a number of standalone tools to perform such tasks as calculating timesequences or performing trajectory simulations. See the Related Pages section of the developer documentation for a list of them and their usage. The Stark effect calculations in this code are superseded by CMIstark, which provides input compatible to the libcoldmol trajectory calculations. The library and programm suite was originally developed and written by Jochen Küpper. The Stark effect calculations of asymmetric tops and many improvements to the trajectory calculations were imlemented by Frank Filsinger. Smaller improvements were implemented by Fabian Grätz, Stephan Putzke, and Yuan-Pin Chang. Helpful discussions on trajectory simulations with Nicolas Vanhaecke and on symmetries in Stark effect calculations with Boris Sartakov are acknowledged.
