Amsterdam Strax

Amstrax is the analysis framework for XAMS, built on top of the generic strax framework.


For installing the package do the regular install-packages-from-github tricks:

pip install amstrax

All required dependencies will be installed for you.


First you'll need to get some data. For this you'll need to either run somewhere where nikhef's /data/xenon/xams is available or have data downloaded. Either strax processed data or pax raw data is fine. Once you have data you can try running the Tutorial notebook (although it's in Dutch), just make sure to change the output_folder to where you have data


2.0.0 / 2023-08-29

New release, major changes.


  • Adjust imports
  • Add arguments to amstraxer for auto processing
  • New amstraxer_easy for easier autoprocessing (removed unnecessary options..) -> TODO replace amstraxer
  • autoprocessing/ : add local processing option (for now preferred?)
  • autoprocessing/ : add number of failures handling
  • make amstrax straxen independent (to be discussed, for me is just source of problems, straxen changes quickly)
  • : adjusted some contexts options, TODO: clean all contexts
  • rundb interface more structured
  • added process_run as script

Processing plugins:

  • refactored structure
  • make plugins straxen free (at the cost of copy pasting few functions from straxen)
  • unified raw records in one type only
  • simplified pulse processing
  • two new useful plugins for LED calibrations, see the full pulses
  • workflow up to peaks tested, need events to tune things
