What is DAPHNE?

DAPHNE stands for DAta for PHoton and Neutron Experiments and is a project funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) for a National Research Data Infrastructure (NFDI)

The Goals of DAPHNE:

  • Improve metadata capture through consistent workflows supported by user-driven online logbooks that are linked to the data collection, thus enabling a richer capture of information about the experiments than is currently possible
  • Establish a community repository of processed data, new reference databases and analysis code for published results, linked, where possible, to raw data sources, to sustainably improve access to research data and enable data and software re-use
  • Develop, curate and deploy user-developed analysis software on facility computing infrastructure so that ordinary users can benefit from and repeat the analysis performed by leading power user groups through common data analysis portals.
