This new article features the international research team led by Jean-Luc Vay, senior scientist and head of Berkeley Lab’s Accelerator Modeling Program (AMP) in the Accelerator Technology and Applied Physics (ATAP) Division, who have spent the last 6 years creating WarpX, a novel, highly parallel and highly optimized single-source simulation code for modeling plasma-based particle colliders on cutting-edge exascale supercomputers. Funded by DOE’s Exascale Computing Project (ECP), WarpX now enables computational explorations of key physics questions in the transport and acceleration of particle beams in long chains of plasma channels, which could yield significant savings in the design and characterization of plasma-based colliders before they are built.
