Scientific Computing





The scientific computing (SC) group in the JCNS outstation at FRM II is a joint project group of Forschungszentrum Jülich and Technische Universität München.



Data Analysis Software

We support instrument scientists and their users in all questions related to data analysis. We develop and maintain dedicated data-analysis software for neutron scattering. We coordinate the standardisation of data formats.

We preferentially use open-source software, and we contribute back to open-source projects. We administer scientific software licenses for all instrument groups at FRM II.



We represent JCNS and FRM II in national and international data management initiatives:

  • PNI-HDRI : High Data Rate Processing and Analysis Initiative
  • PaNdata : Photon and Neutron Data Infrastructure
  • NeXus : A common data format for neutron, x-ray and muon science


Application Server

For software downloads and for information about ongoing projects, see our
application server at http://apps.jcns.fz-juelich.de.


Opportunities for Students

At any moment, we offer interesting subjects for internships (Werkstudent, Studienarbeit, Praxissemester) and for theses (BSc, MSc, PhD) in physics and in computer science. Please contact a group member.
