A current promising field of research, laser-driven ion acceleration has the potential to reduce the size, cost, and energy consumption of particle accelerators by orders of magnitude.
To better refine the instrumentation, we have developed a virtual diagnostic to measure electromagnetic radiation such as radiation produced from scattered and transmitted laser beams which has been implemented into WarpX, an advanced Particle-in-Cell code that simulates laser-driven particle acceleration. This “FieldProbe” diagnostic provides field measurements and is parallelized using the Message Passing Interface (MPI) and can thus run on High Performance Computing systems such as the NERSC Cori cluster.
