TAF or Telescope A PIxel Analysis Framework allows to perform all the steps of data analysis and simulation for single or multi strip/pixel-sensor geometries. This is the light package based on ROOT.

The code is available from GitHub and CERN GitLab

Note that two other packages, with public access, exist for test beam analysis :

If you are a Test Beam / Telescope enthousiast, you will be interested in the excellent series of Workshops "Beam Telescopes and Test Beams Workshop"

TAF inherits from the original DiamondTracking package written by Dirk Meyer in the late 90’s at CERN for the RD42 collaboration. It was installed in IReS-Strasbourg by Christophe Suire and Jérôme Baudot in the late 90’s for the characterization of silicon strip sensors within the STAR and ALICE collaborations. At the turn of the new century, the CMOS sensor group at IReS took over the code to study pixel detectors, still with the same silicon strip telescope. That was the creation of MAF by Youri Gornushkin, Gilles Orazi, Auguste Besson, Damien Grandjean and Marc Winter. The advent of telescope using pixel sensors as reference planes generated the need for TAF in 2005.
