“MCA Recorder”, a platform independent, open graphical MCA controller software — •Benedikt Bieringer — Institut für Kernphysik, WWU Münster, Germany
Multichannel Analyzers are broadly used in diverse scientific and educational contexts. Most times, proprietary libraries and software are needed to interact with commercial MCA devices. In this work, a new controller software with low-level device interaction is introduced that is free of calls to proprietary libraries and written in platform independent Python code. It features a clean GUI, allows live fits on Gaussian distributions and ships with open source code. Currently supported devices are the “Ortec EasyMCA 8k” (requires license from manufacturer), “CAEN N957” and “Ortec 926 MCB”.
