Abstract | Full Text

The article describes the developed Unified Database designed as a comprehensive relational data storage for the [email protected] experiment at the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research in Dubna. The [email protected] experiment, which is one of the main elements of the first stage of the NICA project, is a fixed target experiment at extracted Nuclotron beams of the Laboratory of High Energy Physics (LHEP JINR). The structure and purposes of the [email protected] setup are briefly presented. The article considers the scheme of the Unified Database, its attributes and implemented features in detail. The use of the developed [email protected] database provides correct multi-user access to actual information of the experiment for data processing. It stores information on the experiment runs, detectors and their geometries, different configuration, calibration and algorithm parameters used in offline data processing. An important part of any database - user interfaces are presented.
