Anton is currently a PhD candidate in physics at the University of Warwick where he has built a custom spectrometer and established the instrument control software techniques shared by several experiments. In April, Anton will begin work as a software engineer at Pico Technology, a company which develops PC-controlled electronic test equipment. In his spare time, he enjoys a diverse range of music and grumbles about politics.

Building scientific experiments with F#
Featuring Anton Tcholakov
Experiment control software presents many interesting challenges: it requires a combination of concurrent communication with several external devices as well as real-time data charting. Computationally demanding signal processing in software is often also needed.
