RIKEN Nishina Center for Accelerator-Based Science Computing and Network Team

Team Leader: Hidetada Baba (Ph.D.)

Research Summary

Hidetada  Baba(Ph.D.)

This team is in charge of research & development of the data acquisition/processing system, and operation of computer/network environments for nuclear physics experiments at the Nishina Center for Accelerator-Based Science.
We are developing a network-distributed data acquisition (DAQ) system as well as parallel readout systems and lossless detector front-end systems to establish hi-performance data taking. In addition, an advanced DAQ infrastructure using timestamp and trigger modules that are implemented with reconfigurable logic circuits is available. Research of real-time data processing using hardware acceleration is ongoing. We are also collaborating with domestic and international researchers to develop new DAQ systems.
