Cicero Word Generator
Intuitive exprimental control software for atomic physics
- Control of National Instruments cards providing analog and digital outputs, using
an intuitive graphical user interface.
- Control of other devices via RS232 ("serial") and GPIB commands.
- 1 - 2 microsecond time resolution on 60s long sequences, through use of variable
frequency sample clocks to reduce buffer sizes.
- Client / Server architecture, separation of UI program from hardware output program,
allowing scaling to arbitrary numbers of output channels.
- Batch processing, variable scanning, and run logging allow for automated data collection
while eliminating tedious work.
