On-line data acquisition for an X-Ray spectrometer

Your tasks

This project deals with the visualization and on-line data acquisition of an X-Ray spectrometer working in the so-called tender spectral region (between soft and hard X-Rays). The work comprises the development of a proper quick analysis procedure, region-of-interest selection and graphical user interface for users and operators to use the spectrometer interface. It could also include a simplified calibration procedure and will ideally involve working with the spectrometer itself, if beam time will become available.

Your profile

  • Student in physics, engineering or a similar field (minimum 4 semesters)
  • Interest in developing new instruments and measurement methods
  • You are open-minded, communicative and enjoy working in an international team
  • You have not yet completed your Master’s thesis
