Control-software for atomic physics experiments in ion traps.
LaserBrothers software automatically re-locks lasers to reference cavities, and doubling-cavities to lasers.
Aluminizer software controls the NIST aluminum ion clock. This is an application with a graphical front-end (client) to an FPGA-based pulse-sequencer (server). Pulse-sequences are written as object-oriented C++ programs with timing resolution of 10 ns and jitter of about 1 ns. Many calibrations are performed automatically. This program is written specifically to control the NIST Al+/Mg+ clock, but effort was made to keep the code general enough to adapt to other tasks.
LabAC software controls a laboratory air-conditioning system. THIS CODE HAS NOT YET BEEN UPLOADED.
BullsIon software shows the coordinates of a laser-beam that's on a webcam. THIS CODE HAS NOT YET BEEN UPLOADED.

This project was created on 4/3/2010. LaserBrothers code has been uploaded, but the code for the other programs still needs to be cleaned up before it is posted. Documentation is lacking, but requests for support can be made here.
