Blu-Ice Overview

Blu-Ice is the graphical user interface (GUI) to the Distributed Control System (DCS). Blu-Ice/DCS system was designed and developed by the Structural Molecular Biology (SMB) group at SSRL mainly for crystallographic data collection at synchrotron light sources. We adopted and customized the system so that it can be used for small angle scattering/diffraction on BL4-2. The original version of Blu-ICE and DCS are documented in the web pages can be found here.
