Frontiers of modern physics
Seminar for Young Scientists, Postgraduate Students and Undergraduates
National Instruments products in the KATRIN experiment
The Karlsruhe Tritium Neutrino (KATRIN) experiment will determine the mass of
the electron neutrino with a sensitivity of 0.2 eV (90% CL) via a measurement of the
beta-spectrum of gaseous tritium near its endpoint of E0 = 18.57 keV.
An ultra-high vacuum (~10-11 mbar) and very low background ~10 mHz is among
the requirements on reaching this sensitivity. Using modern hardware and software
solutions from National Instruments helps to achieve those challenging parameters.
Distributed network of programmable controllers provide high-reliable control and
monitoring of different parameters of KATRIN experiment’s setup. Number of
applications based on LabVIEW and DIADEM software from National Instruments
will be presented.
