As particle accelerators push to produce higher brightness beams and shorter wavelength radiation, the computational modeling of these beams becomes more challenging. In particular, the modeling of real diagnostics/detectors is inadequate and necessitates further computational efforts. This project will develop a user-friendly, modular radiation code that will accurately model the radiation emitted by high-brightness beams as observed by particular diagnostics. The emphasis of the code will be on actual measurable quantities that are detectable by real diagnostics, such as angular distribution and spectrum. The code also will have a user-friendly interface to eliminate the steep learning curves possessed by other codes.Commercial Applications and other Benefits as described by the awardee: The new radiation code should aid in the design of future accelerators as well as optimize the day-to-day operations of present day accelerators. The software will benefit accelerator users across all fields, including those involved with medical imaging and materials studies.
