Over the last years we have started a process to automate and control all of our experiments with Python. To make the setup of new experiment as simple as possible we have (with the help of SIS) started to develop a unified control interface for various lab…Read More

For the transfer of knowledge between PhD generations, and/or to industry, the approach is to promote that code in research re…
