Big software for big science

The Experimental Physics and Industrial Control System (EPICS) is a distributed control system used in many of the world’s largest physics experiments.  I was asked by XCAM Ltd. – a leading designer and manufacturer of advanced CCD camera systems – to write software to integrate their RIXSCam X-Ray camera and XIP real-time X-Ray super-resolution software into EPICS.  XIP, which I developed as part of an earlier project, is already in use at the Paul Scherrer Institute in Switzerland.  The EPICS system has now been successfully installed on the synchrotron at Brookhaven National Laboratory in Long Island, New York.  The integration with EPICS means that users can control the image acquisition and processing remotely, and as part of an overall experimental configuration.
