A program for fitting structural models to small angle scattering data
SASfit has been written for analyzing and plotting small angle scattering data. It can calculate integral structural parameters like radius of gyration, scattering invariant, Porod constant. Furthermore it can fit size distributions together with several form factors including different structure factors. Additionally an algorithm has been implemented, which allows to simultaneously fit several scattering curves with a common set of (global) parameters. This last option is especially important in contrast variation experiments or measurements with polarised neutrons. The global fit helps to determine fit parameters unambiguously which by analysing a single curve would be otherwise strongly correlated.

PyRPL turns your Red Pitaya into a powerful analog feedback device.
The Red Pitaya is a commercial, affordable FPGA board with fast analog inputs and outputs. This makes it useful for quantum optics experiments, in particular as a digital feedback controller for analog systems. Based on the open source software provided by the board manufacturer, PyRPL (Python RedPitaya Lockbox) implements many devices that are needed for optics experiments with the Red Pitaya. PyRPL implements various digital signal processing (DSP) modules (see features below). It allows to arbitrarily interconnect the available DSP modules and retrieve signal values on timescales below 1 ms. The graphical user interface (GUI) provides a realtime display of the various measurement instruments and allows the easy configuration of DSP signal chains and feedback controllers. At the highest abstraction level, arbitrary feedback sequences can be defined to fulfill tasks as complex as approaching and locking a resonance of a high-finesse Fabry-Perot cavity (tested up to finesse=100,000).

Python GUI program to work with Geiger counters like GMC-300/320/500
GeigerLog is a Python based GUI program to work with GQ Electronic's GMC-300 / 320 and now also GMC-500 Geiger counters. Available as "scripts" to run where a proper Python environment exists, or as "bundle", which brings its own Python environment (but currently runs on Linux only). GeigerLog allows reading of Geiger counter data, logging to file, printing to screen and plotting as graph, showing Count Rate vs. Time, both in various, selectable units. The history stored on the Geiger counter's internal memory can be extracted, analyzed and graphed in the same way. The graph is live auto-updated and allows various customization. Time ranges for analysis can be set manually or per left/right mouse click. GeigerLog can control some functions of a connected counter (limited to GMC-3xx counters!). Advanced analysis of the data now permits count rate histograms with Poisson fit for quality control of data, and FFT analysis for any periodic signal hidden within the data.

A simple N-Body simulator.
This project simulates the behavior, dynamics, and motion of a group of celestial objects. Given N point masses in a three-dimensional space, its present positions and velocities, and supposing that the force of attraction experienced between each pair of particles is Newtonian, the project approximately predicts it's positions and velocities at a future moment of time. The project can visualize the simulation, and create a graphic real-time output using FreeGLUT, and also have an option for textual output and archiving. Bugale N-Body Data Editor provides a graphic user interface for creating and editing the settings and body data files of Bugale N-Body Simulator.

A MATLAB toolbox to simulate optical systems
Modal Interferometer Simulation Tool (MIST) is a MATLAB toolbox that can simulate arbitrary resonant optical systems in the paraxial beam approximation. It allows the user to define any optical setup (composed typically of laser sources, mirrors, lenses, electro-optical modulators and detectors) and to compute the static laser field at any point. It uses a Hermite-Gauss modal decomposition to simulate diffraction limited optics. This tool is being developed mainly for simulation of large scale interferometers with resonant cavities used for the detection of gravitational waves. Subscribe to the mailing list for updates and news. If you use MIST in your own simulation work, please cite is as G.

A highly flexible 3D flocking boids simulator, conceived as a tool for
This project concerns the design and implementation of an open-source flocking boids simulator, designed as a tool to analyze and characterize flock-like collective emerging behaviors. Each boid is conceived as an active agent and modelled by a point-mass approximation. Boid movements in a 3D space are guided by a set of elementary steering behaviors, each implemented as a force acting on the boid's point mass. Each boid is affected by interactions with both the environment and other boids. The set of considered behaviors are inspired by the well-known approach introduced in 1987 by C. W. Reynolds. The simulator delivers a 3D visual interface and provides as an output file all the instantaneous microscopic information related to each boid (positions and velocities over time), allowing in this way subsequent analysis, such as searching for synthetic and higher-level descriptions of collective behaviors, relying for instance on global network and meta-structural properties.

solves nonlinear Kohn-Sham equation for the neutral atom.
RAtom solves nonlinear Kohn-Sham equation for the neutral atom. The adaptive algorithm based on finite element method (FEM) is implemented. Discretization of the differential eigenvalue problem is done by finite element method with Lobatto polynomials as a basis functions. High order Gauss quadratures are applied in order to obtain the total energy of atom with absolut accuracy of 1E-6 hartree. Disctretization leads to generalized eigenvalue problem, which is solved by procedures from LAPACK libraries. The program is implemented in C++, it runs as a single thread. The implemented algorithm is described in the following papers: 1. Z. Romanowski, "Adaptive solver of a Kohn-Sham equation for an atom", Modelling Simul. Mater. Sci. Eng. vol. 17, 045001 (2009) 2. Z. Romanowski, "Application of h-adaptive, high order finite element method to solve radial Schrödinger equation", Molecular Physics, vol. 107, pp. 1339-1348 (2009).
