ENGINEER-PHYSISIST Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory), January 2005 – February 2010
As part of a team, built from scratch Metrology lab for undulator tuning at SLAC. Found and negotiated specs with
vendors, bought equipment and programmed it. Created software for complex magnetic and mechanical measurements
procedures for LCLS project.
Used the following measurements techniques and built the following setups:
1. Did PLC programming for Kugler, Newport and Parker motion controllers. Installed Heidenhain Encoders
2. Used Labview and its FPGA and real time modules to track motion errors and generate real time triggers for
data acquisition modules. Result in the position accuracy at trigger time was better than micron.
3. Did mechanical design for limit switches and extra gear setup (Autocad). 4. Participated in purchase of the new Kugler (made) granite bench ($450k). Developed specification and went to
5. Developed unique three-phase 60 Hz rejection filter to improve accuracy of the long coil measurements (used
6. Built Hall probe calibration system (LabWindows cvi) using MetroLab precise NMR probes. 7. Imlemented all time temperature measurements and logging. Programmed dedicated server to instantly measure
temperature of all undulators in the lab as well as ambient temperature and broadcast them over the network to all measurement setups. Thus every undulator measurement kept track of temperature.
8. Built an alarm system that was implemented to track lab temperature and automatically send telephone
messages to designed users in a case of dangerous temperature change.
9. Did undulator measurements and tuning occasionally when needed. 10. Integrated Matlab and IDL into C-based measurement programs for C-application to send parameters to either
Matlab or/and IDL, then run Matlab/IDL on background, read both results back and use them as needed.
11. Manually converted Matlab code that calculated beam trajectory into plain ‘C’. This allows using trajectory
analysis under OS platform that do not support Matlab or IDL.
12. Developed algorithms to find mechanical and magnetic centers of undulator. 13. Set up dedicated computer as Raid 1 server to collect all measurement data at local network. The server was
also responsible for copying all MMF data to public drive and web.
14. Developed the folder based data file structure in accordance with the requirements of our customer at control
group. It placed all measured data for given undulator at separate folder. The undulator folder contained subfolders that kept different datasets. New data set was generated every time undulator is returned back to MMF for measurement. The special software module was developed to force user to use proper undulator serial numbers and proper datasets, as well as user name, date, comments and etc. All measurement procedures at MMF were using this module as a start point.
