PID-2023-0501: Exploring the software defined radio hardware for low latency application is beam diagnostics and feedback

Project IDPID-2023-0501
FieldExploring the software defined radio hardware for low latency application is beam diagnostics and feedback
Eligible GroupMaster students
Duration6 month


Software defined radio is a signal processing paradigm where most of the signal processing can be performed and optimized by means of high level programming. This is in contrast to dedicated analog hardware or application specific digital processors utilized in the past. This paradigm is especially suited to low volume custom devices for particle accelerator applications. In this project, the RFNoC framework will be explored for implementation of advanced feedback controllers and particle counters. More details of the project can be obtained on contact via email.

PID-2022-0601: Fractional STIRAP for sodium signal enhancement in Laser Guide Star

Project IDPID-2022-0601
FieldRaman spectroscopy
Eligible GroupPhD Students
Duration2 months


Our role in this development is to make a theoretical analysis and a prediction for experimental validation of the concept of Laser Guide Star enhanced by quantum control methodology. Quantum control implies a design of the laser radiation properties to obtain a predetermined response in the atomic vapour. In Raman spectroscopy, the strength of the Raman signal is determined by the induced polarization in the atmospheric sodium. This quantity is determined by quantum coherence, maximizing which would thus optimize the Raman signal. We will perform a rigorous investigation, both theoretical and experimental, on the validity of the quantum control technique known as Fractional Stimulated Raman Adiabatic Passage (F-STIRAP) to enhance the guiding signal from artificial stars in the telescope. The theoretical portion of the project will imply the development of a semi-classical model and writing a Python code to numerically analyse propagation effects of the laser radiation and the generated coherent signal from distant atmospheric sodium. We will propose a control technique to increase chemical selectivity of Raman excitation and to improve spectral resolution of the signal. We will determine the range of the laser parameters that provide the optimal conditions for a strong Raman signal generation from the atmospheric sodium.

PID-2022-0505: Nuclear Reaction Cross-Section Database for Space and Heavy-Ion Therapy Applications: Proton Data

Porject IDPID-2022-0505
Eligible groupBachelor / Master students
Duration8 to 12 weeks


The project will consist of the addition of proton data to the nuclear reaction cross-section database as these data are currently not included and protons are very important both for heavy-ion therapy and for radiation protection in space.

PID-2022-0504: Splice resistance measurement using the Quench Detection system

Project IDPID-2022-0504
FieldSC Magnets and Testing
Eligible groupMaster students
Duration6 to 12 months (partly remote)


The SIS100 superconducting cryo-modules are connected to each other with so-called splices – electrical connections with a residual resistance of few nanoohms at cryogenic condition. Keeping this resistance low is extremely important for the proper operation of superconducting circuits. Therefore, development of a splice resistance monitoring system is strongly recommended. Typically, such a measurement is performed by using high precision (8½ digit) voltmeters and high current source. The aim of the project is to provide an alternative measurement method using the already existing data acquisition function of the QuD system. Despite of the limited resolution of QuD channels, the new signal-processing concept was investigated showing that the method can be successfully applied in practice. This project aims the complete development of the signal processing software, which later on will be a part of the SIS100 machine monitoring system.

PID-2022-0502: Using Kalman Filter for femtoscopy studies with strange hyperons in the CBM

Project IDPID 2022-0502
FieldCBM (Machine learning and Computational Sciences)
Eligible groupMaster students / PhD / Postdoctorals
Duration3 to 12 months


The subject of the internship will be to adopt the Kalman Filter package for femtoscopic measurements with strange hyperons in the CBM experiment at FAIR. The developed software will be used to study the CBM performance with Monte Carlo simulations using heavy-ion event generators and the GEANT model of the CBM detector subsystems.

PID-2022-0403: Simulation and design of wideband hybrids for capacitive loads

Project IDPID-2022-0403
FieldBeam Instrumentation
Eligible GroupBachelor students
Duration6 months


FAIR will host many circular synchrotrons and storage rings. The work-horse for most of these machines are the capacitive pick-up systems. These pick-ups provide turn-by-turn position information, particle phase advances and are extremely important for day to day operations. FAIR machine will cope with unprecedented large dynamic range in beam currents, and therefore a very flexible and robust front-end electronics is under development. One of the options in this regard is the usage of transformer based hybrids. The goal of this thesis will be to design and evaluate the hybrids in operation conditions. Further it will be matched it with the back-end electronics and data acquisition system. The student will get experience will real world electronics design concepts and a good design might even be tested with beam in SIS-18.
