Online Student Learning

The School of Physical Sciences at the University of Liverpool required an online “app” for students. This app demonstrates an effect called Wakefield Acceleration – where photons can be used to accelerate charged particles under certain conditions.

LiveWires was chosen to develop this app. We enhanced a piece of existing LabVIEW code and transferred it to LabVIEW NXG 5.1 so that the web application could be built.

Students are able to “fire” the photon (shown as a red circle) and the app shows it being accelerated by a photon. By selecting different conditions (amplitude, wavelength etc) the students are able to optimise the acceleration achieved.

LiveWires produced both PC and Mobile versions of the app for the university.

I hired Tim’s services to convert a LabView application that I had written into a web application for the University of Liverpool’s Physics Department. Tim understood very quickly our requirements and even proposed some improvements. He not only has a deep knowledge of the LabView software, but also of the physics behind the project. It was a real pleasure to work with him and I was very pleased with the results.
