Quantum Detectors specialises in software consultancy for science and large scale facilities, from capturing requirements, development, project delivery, to long term support for deployed projects. Our primary customers are world leading research facilities such as Diamond Light Source.
Our team consists of experienced research scientists as well as software developers, we believe this combination is vital in scientific software development to ensure requirements are fully captured and that ultimately customers are provided with complete solutions. Many scientific software teams lack sufficient understanding of the scientific question which they are addressing.
Data analysis and processing
TANGO and EPICS
Let us help you out with that!
Portfolio: ISPyB’s SynchWeb
SynchWeb is the most advanced and complete interface to the Macromolecular Crystallography (MX) database ISPyB. This is currently deployed to all MX users at Diamond Light Source. Read More. Source code is available on github and more extensive information can be found on the github pages
Portfolio: XRF Web
XRF-Web is a simple web application for inspection and fitting of ascii fluorescence spectra, demonstrating the type of functionality possible with modern web based technology.
Portfolio: Xray Utils
Opening the web app will cache it on your device, whether you run it on iOS, Android, on desktop or on laptop once loaded you will have instant access to it regardless of your internet connection. The utility is composed of four parts:
Status – shows the current storage ring monitors of several synchrotron facilities around the world. Shake your device if you’re bored to display one at random! A bunch of the links that we used before are broken and we will continue to update these as we make improvements. Can’t find the synchrotron that you use? Contact me (and if you know the web address for the status page that’s even better!) and you just might see it in the next release.
Elements – Will display the general atomic properties, absorption edges, and fluorescence lines (with yields) for elements hydrogen through californium. A must for the x-ray absorption experimenter or microprobe user. Can also click on the “filter” button to show you the elemental filters that could used for scatter reduction in an EXAFS experiment.
Absorption – Don’t know how much your kapton windows absorb at Cu? Wondering if that meter of air path will absorb all your x-rays? The x-ray absorption calculator will tell you! This utility Will calculate the absorption length and total absorption of any compound, given the x-ray energy, chemical formula, density and thickness of the compound of interest. Includes a list of common compounds, and you can also add your own.
Chambers – Ever wonder how much X-ray flux is really in your experiment? By entering the basic properties of the ion chamber in your experiment (gas composition, pressure, energy, chamber length, measured voltage and amplifier gain) you will get the x-ray flux in photons per second.
