pi3diamond is a toolkit for confocal scanning, anti-bunching, FLIM, pulsed ODMR / NMR, and more sophisticated quantum physics experiments, typically performed with NV centers in diamond, written in python using the enthought traits packages.
pi3diamond is a set of python modules that consists of
- classes to control instruments (microwave sources, piezo scanners, etc.)
- widgets to run measurements (confocal scanning, ODMR, etc.)
- a scheduler and cron daemon to control the execution of measurements
To use the modules, you will typically write a little startup script, that defines your hardware instruments and starts up GUI widgets for the measurements you want to run.
clone the git repository, copy 'example.py' to a new file, e.g. 'startup.py', open it in an editor and adopt it to your needs.
open an ipython shell with a QT GUI event loop
ipython --gui=qt and run
the startup script
Note: you can try out most of pi3diamond without actual hardware connected
by using the mocking classes found in
