The XSD Scientific Software Engineering & Data Management Group (SDM) provides leadership and scientific software engineering expertise in support of world-class photon sciences at the APS in the areas of
This mission is realized through the creation of a core software application portfolio in prioritized areas, including
Well-formed collaborative teams of software engineers, computer scientists, algorithm developers, beamline staff, users, peer groups, and other facilities and institutions develop the SDM group’s software portfolio. Effort is aligned with facility priorities and strategies, which at this time include scientific software and data management tools critical to the techniques enabled by the APS-U.
The group works closely with the XSD-CXS group to implement new algorithms and mathematical methods, and with the XSD-BC group to integrate with beamline data acquisition systems.
