  • Added standard deviation error calculation to FTDI averaging process, writes errors to an additional line in CSV file.
  • Multithreaded FTDI code to optimise DAQ speed using 3 threads. With an integration time of 170us and 4 DDC232 boards, average time between measurements is typically 172us, down from about 200-210us.
  • Will meet with Clive and Izzat on 23rd to discuss daisy-chain problems on DDC232 board.
  • Will assist Fern in setting up libFTDI on Raspberry Pi early next week.
  • Created poster for HEP summer school.
  • Will spend most of time this week working on pre-HEP School problems.

Fern Pannell


  • Start button changes to Restart upon click.
  • Buttons for Bortfeld and Quenched Bragg curves appear once Start is clicked.
  • Need to investigate how to add and remove data sets in Chart.js, then integrate this functionality into the JS buttons.
  • Still need to trial plotting a curve with >>16 points (static CSV file first).

Raspberry Pi

  • Work with Saad to set up libFTDI on Pi.
  • Test Apache server. Will need to install Java on the Pi to test Apache server with dummy data.

PhD Update:

  • Second Imperial Interview with RAL PPD scheduled.
  • Invited to interview for UCL HEP and Birmingham.
