As a researcher, Christian’s days are spent acquiring lots of data simultaneously and making sense of it immediately. So understanding how his code works is crucial to not missing any data point that might lead to a new discovery. Because the graphical programming approach enables him to conceptualize his application and how information is processed in parallel, Christian has been using LabVIEW for the past 15 years.
Christian prefers programming in LabVIEW because he can use the graphical nature of the environment to build applications logically and visually – the way he solves problems himself.
Christian has written several programs used by many researchers in his field to analyze data. Probably the most popular and most complex is his fitting program for multicomponent EPR spectra. It makes EPR lineshape simulation and fitting much easier, more intuitive, and significantly more flexible compared to the old command-line-driven programs. At the same time, his program takes full advantage of multicore hardware.
You can use LabVIEW to develop simple to sophisticated measurement, test, and control systems with graphical icons and wires that resemble a flowchart. Through this intuitive development approach, you can get to your results faster and complete higher-quality projects in less time.
