Research Data Repository of Saxon Universities

OPARA is the Open Access Repository and Archive for Research Data of Saxon Universities.

Researchers of Saxon Universities can either publish their research data on OPARA, or archive it here to comply with requirements of funding acencies and good scientic practice, without public access.

You can find the documentation of this service at the ZIH Data Compendium websites. If you need suppourt using OPARA please contact the Servicedesk of TU Dresden.

Please note: The OPARA service was recently upgraded to a new technical platform (this site). Previously stored data will not be available here immediately. It can be found at the still active old version of OPARA. These stock data will be migrated in near future and then the old version of OPARA will finally be shut down. Existing DOIs for data publications remain valid.

Source code, scripts, and data used in the PhD thesis "Fine-grained OS Control over High-performance Networking"
(Technische Universität Dresden, 2024-05-27) Planeta, Maksym
The dataset comprises the data from three projects: MigrOS, CoRD, and Fastcalls. The MigrOS project is a system for live migration of high-performance networking applications. The CoRD project is a system for enabling fine-grained control over the RDMA network data plane. The Fastcalls project is a system for enabling fast system calls in the Linux kernel. This project includes both privileged and unprivileged fastcalls.

2D Imaging Simulation from 3D Particle Data: Python Notebooks, Particle Datasets, and Simulation Results
(Technische Universität Bergakademie Freiberg, 2024-05-14) Buchwald, Thomas; Ditscherlein, Ralf
2D projection imaging techniques are simulated with 3D particle data from tomography measurements. This submission contains three distinct parts: original particle data, Python notebooks to simulate 2D imaging of the particles, and the resulting simulation dataset. The particle data comes as STLs that have been converted from VTK particle data as provided by the PARROT database ( The STL files are *not* identical with the STLs provided by PARROT as of May 2024! The particle data folder is provided as separate archive because of its large size. The Python notebooks were created with Jupyter Lab and Anaconda. A environment.yml file is provided that recreates the Anaconda environment. The simulation dataset that results from the provided Python notebooks is made available as CSV files or as pickled Python (pandas) DataFrames. Please refer to the included Readme for a detailed description of the files contained in the archive.

PGT Prompt Gamma Timing PETsys data for publication at IKTP (PGT)
(Technische Universität Dresden, 2024-05-14) Novgorodova, Olga; Straessner, Arno; Hentges, Rainer; Glatte, Andreas; Lutz, Benjamin; Roemer, Katja; Teichmann, Thobias; Koegler, Toni
Proton therapy requires range verification in order to exploit its full potential. One of the most promising approaches is to monitor prompt gamma-rays produced by nuclear interactions of the therapeutic particles in the patient tissues. In our paper, we test PETsys electronics with a detector with a wide energy range from 100 keV to 15 MeV. We tested what time resolution we could achieve as a high time resolution is required to achieve millimetric precision in the proton range. PETsys should survive high count rates and the fraction of pile-up events should be low or separatable. We are investigating a full acceptance approach with increased granularity in order to reduce the size of the scintillators and consequently the count rate per channel. Ideally, we want to stack the scintillators in matrices that require suitable multi-channel photo-multipliers and a fitting acquisition system. Here, we present two geometries of CeBr3 crystals 5 × 5 × 20 mm3 and 10 × 10 × 30 mm3, together with modern silicon photo-multipliers (SiPM) adapted to work with the PETsys TOFPET2 ASIC. The TOFPET2 ASIC was developed for Time-of-Flight Positron Emission Tomography (TOF-PET) applications. Here are our data measured for the publication for time resolution and coincidence time resolution, energy resolution with AmBe source, and dead time studies.
