Description

The school is organized by IEEE Nuclear and Plasma Sciences Society and the South Africa- CERN consortium and will be held at iThemba LABS in Cape Town July 7th - 17th. Its intention is to give practical experience with developing and controlling mid-range real time experiments. Hands-on experience is very important. The school provides lectures and laboratory exercises, given by experts in radiation measurements with state-of-the-art experience. The lectures introduce firmware, software and web based programming (for remote control), and show how this can be used in different areas of science. In order to minimize the hardware cost Raspberry Pis are used as controllers. This should be an advantage when the students later develop their own systems. The Raspberry Pi operating system is similar to Linux which means that it supports many of the standard Data Acquisition software tools.

The schedule close to final but modifications might still occur

The goal of the school is

  • To train students in the area of radiation detectors and its applications.
  • To enhance the development of real-time system in South Africa.
  • To promote the participation of young scientists in radiation measurements and related fields

      Introduction to Readout, Trigger and Control Architecture 45m iThemba LABS

      iThemba LABS

      Cape Town

      Old Faure Road, Faure Cape Town 7131 South Africa

      This series of 2 lectures introduces some basic concepts in modern
      physics experiment.

      The world of frontier physics experiments challenges system design in all its aspects from the definition of the architecture, to data structures and general technology choices, all the way down to the the electronics components. The control and readout are based on very large and complex systems composed of many different technologies which are developed in different environments and cultures. Ultimately, they must meet in a well-integrated system for operational efficiency, and allow maintenance and upgrades over a very
      long period of time, often without the original designers. This
      translates into a number of considerations and guidelines which should be taken into account from day one in the development of each of the sub-components.

      The first part of the lecture gives an introduction to the design of the general architecture of readout, trigger and control systems of the physics experiments, and outlines the definition and functionality of each of the sub-systems. Particular emphasis is put on the functional and environmental criteria which drives the technological choices and the development strategy in view of the long life cycle of the experiments and the many different phases.

      In the second part, we will have a look at a number of actual implementations, and examine different choices in electronics, data structures, compression technologies, communication protocols, and how these areas have evolved in the last decade.

      Old Faure Road, Faure Cape Town 7131 South Africa

      In order to detect and properly identify particles in High Energy Physics experiments you need to combine results from a combination sub-detectors. There is usually a large number of particles to handle at the same time and many events to study.
      I will talk about different types of sub-detectors, how they are combined, different architectures and how this affects the construction of the Data Acquisition Systems. I will start with the basics and then discuss how this is implemented in an actual detector system – the ATLAS detector at CERN.

      At the start of the school I will give a very brief introduction to the Unix shell. Most of the exercises during the school will make use of the shell in one way or another, so it is important to be comfortable with it. I will explain why the shell is so powerful, and give some every-day use examples so it is easier for novices to get around on the system.

      After discussions with some of you, I have added a small writeup that might explain a few concepts more thoroughly. Download the shell_writeup,pdf file.

      Cape Town

      Old Faure Road, Faure Cape Town 7131 South Africa

      This tutorial teaches modern web technologies for real time visualization and control of processes and experiments. The course starts from basic HTML elements, and then covers modern HTML5 technologies and their usage to display any graphical data. An embedded web server on a Raspberry Pi computer is written from scratch, which can be controlled from any browser using the above technologies to read sensors and switch outputs.

      Every attendee is encouraged to bring her/his own laptop to
      interactively develop and test all examples. A wireless private network will be available. It is recommended to have a quick look at JSFiddle (https://jsfiddle.net) since this tool will be used throughout the course.

      iThemba LABS

      Cape Town

      Old Faure Road, Faure Cape Town 7131 South Africa

      Data acquisition in nuclear and particle physics requires the precise measurement of signal amplitudes and time from detectors. This lecture first gives an overview of traditional methods using signal shaping, various discriminators and analog-to-digital converters (ADC) and time-to-digital converters (TDC). It then moves over to high speed waveform digitizing, a field which recently made tremendous progress due to faster ADCs and so-called switched-capacitor array integrated circuits. These novel devices allow the direct digitisation of detectors with several gigasamples per second (GSPS) and resolutions up to 12 bits. The lecture introduces various signal processing methods to extract the signal amplitude and time from detector signals in the presence of noise.

      This exercise gives you the possibility to experience the techniques learned in the Web Monitoring and Control lesson. You will learn to write basic and more advanced dynamic web pages. A RaspberryPi with a SenseHat addition will be used in the exercise. You will learn to compile an run a web server on the Raspberry Pi. Then we will use a Web page to turn on/off LEDs on the Raspberry Pi, read out a temperature sensor and a button. The exercise contains 12 tasks, but offer a certain flexibility to do additional things on your own.

      Since you use your own laptop, please make sure to have the "ssh" tool installed to log in to the RaspberryPi. For Windows Laptops you can install that from www.cygwin.com
