Physikalisches Institut (PHI)

Software and Techniques

The group develops software to operate low temperature cryostats and complex scientific experiments. Most prominently, the versatile open source software package QKIT is freely available on github.

It also contains the a circle fit algorithm (and variants of it) described in

Efficient and robust analysis of complex scattering data under noise in microwave resonators
