On-line analysis of nuclear reactions using arrays of transputers
Detection and analysis of nuclear reactions require the combination of coincident detector signals due to multiparametric events, i.e. sequences of digitised signals preceded by their coincidence pattern. A modular on-line analysis system is described whereby a linear array of transputers combines a variable number of detector signals. The events are then passed to a second transputer array where they are analysed and sorted according to user-programmed codes. The computing power of the system may be increased in proportion to the workload, simply by adding some more transputers to the one or the other array.
