SuperConducting Resonator Analysis and Plotting Software.

Project Description
scraps stands for: SuperConducting Resonator Analysis and Plotting Software

.. |DOI| image::

Scraps is a package designed to help you analyze lots of data from superconducting
resonators. The basic idea is that you hook up your VNA (or mixer) and measure S21
at several different temperatures and driving powers. Maybe you have a PID and some
decent automation software that take several hundred traces, and now you don't know
what to do with all that data. Enter scraps. Scraps will organize it all and run
fits on it, and make pretty pictures you can show your advisor or funding committee
or spouse (when asked what you do all day upon returning home) or even put into a
journal article.

Currently scraps is designed to handle resonator S21 data at varying temperatures
and input powers. There are plans to extend scraps to handle varying magnetic field
also, as well as noise in addition to S21. If you would like to be a part of that,
get involved by posting a message here.

Scraps is licensed under the MIT license, so feel free to copy it, play with it,
modify it, etc. under those terms (which are pretty loose!).

Installation is as simple as::

pip install scraps

For complete API documentation, more in depth installation instructions and some
example tutorials, see the official documentation at:

If you use scraps in a publication, please cite the Zenodo DOI: |DOI|

Short description of files that aren't code:

- Example1: a JuPyter notebook that will help you get started with the basics.
Focus is on a single S21 sweep.

- Example2: a slightly more advanced tutorial that focuses on lots of sweeps at
several temperatures and powers.

- A ton of actual superconducting resonator data from a Nb
microstrip resonator made at ANL.

Please post any bugs or feature requests here on GitHub. Bugs will be squashed ASAP.
Feature requests will be seriously considered!
