This information is visible for everyone inside and outside of PSI. There is more stuff below which is only accessible within PSI.
SINQ is using the Sinq Instrument Control Software (SICS) to control all neutron scattering instruments except radiography. Here is some user infromation about SICS.
For some SINQ instruments there are mobile friendly WWW-pages which are updated any 15 minutes. There are:
PSI is operating a virtual powder diffractometer for users to play with. The virtual powder diffractometer is modelled after the real powder diffractometer DMC. A McStas simulation provides the data generated during virtual data collection. Users can choose from a set of pre configured samples or upload a description of their own sample generated with the program Lazy Pulverix. VDMC is driven through an experimental executable manual style WWW user interface.
The instrument control software SICS is accessed through special
client software written in Java. The client programs are available on
all instrument computers. Addionally they can be started from this
very WWW server through the Java Web Start mechanism. More details
about Java WebStart and installation instructions can be found on the
If your computer
has been set up properly you can directly start the SICS WebStart applications from the
View Instrument Status Information. No java or other browser specialities required. Some textual information and a characteristic graphics of the current experiment will be displayed.
In order to support LNS/LDM staff in data analysis and for the MCNP and McStas simulations which are performed a computing cluster is provided. For more information follow this link.
