There will be a virtual HiPACE++ user workshop at the 11th of July 2023 from 4pm to 7pm CET. Please register on the indico webpage in case you are interested.
HiPACE++ is a 3D open-source portable (GPU-capable) quasi-static particle-in-cell code written in C++, available on GitHub. It is a full re-writing of the DESY-LBNL legacy code HiPACE, the Highly efficient Plasma Accelerator Emulator. Its main features are:
Multiple beams and plasma species to simulation beam-driven wakefield acceleration
A laser envelope solver to simulate laser-driven wakefield acceleration
An advanced explicit field solver for increased accuracy
Diagnostics compliant with the openPMD standard
Arbitrary profiles for the beams and plasma profiles
Readers from files for the beam and laser profiles
Adaptive time step and sub-cycling
Additional physics (field ionization, binary collisions, temperature effects, radiation reaction)
HiPACE++ relies on the AMReX library, which provides for particle and field data structures.
