HiPACE++ is a 3D open-source portable (GPU-capable) quasistatic particle-in-cell code written in C++, available here. 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 multiple plasma species to simulation beam-driven wakefield acceleration

  • Field ionization of the plasma using the ADK model

  • Two field solver methods, the original HiPACE predictor-corrector loop and an explicit solver

  • Diagnostics compliant with the openPMD standard

  • Read an arbitrary particle beam from file

  • Adaptive time step and sub-cycling

  • more coming soon…

HiPACE++ relies on the AMReX library, which provides for particle and field data structures.
