Research & Development
This is the website of Ingo Breßler: I am a software developer and computer engineer. My interests include application-oriented numerical data analysis and interpretation in nanotechnology as well as problems in computer-controlled fabrication for additive and subtractive rapid-prototyping, for example 3D Printing and CNC methods.
I offer custom development of
- data analysis and visualization
- computational geometry
- r&d of numerical algorithms
- applications for multiple platforms
MCSAS – A program for determining the sizes of nano-particles by analyzing data of small angle scattering measurements such as SAXS or SANS. It is based on a Monte-Carlo algorithm originally developed by Brian R. Pauw to find a model-free size distribution including uncertainties based on the provided data.

SASfit – A program for fitting structural models to small angle scattering data. In 2008, I joined Dr. Joachim Kohlbrecher in development. Since then, I added several features, bug fixes and performed maintenance of the code base.
