Free-Electron Laser (FEL) Division
Please help flesh this out.
Jianxun Yan, a staff engineer with Jefferson Lab's Free-Electron Laser (FEL) Division was awarded one of two Isamu Abe Prizes at the Sixth International Workshop on Personal Computers and Particle Accelerator Controls (PCaPAC) held at Jefferson Lab in October 2006.
One of his accomplishments was to develop the ColdFire? embedded microprocessor to upgrade the Beam Position Monitor (BPM) control boards and Beam Viewer control board with RTEMS and EPICS software tools. The new configuration will make the control system more powerful and flexible; and by using these open source software tools, there will be no license hassles and less cost, according to Yan.
