*** Product Discontinued - Replaced by  PBO Lab TRACE 3-D Module ***

PowerTrace is a sophisticated graphical user interface shell that has been integrated to run with the accelerator beam dynamics code TRACE 3-D. The interface is based on the Shell for Particle Accelerator Related Codes (S.P.A.R.C.) software technology. All elements are represented with icons on a scrollable palette. The configuration of the beamline is set up visually by selecting and dragging icons to a model window.

PowerTrace includes the TRACE 3-D program maintained by the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL). TRACE 3-D and its documentation are distributed under a license agreement with LANL.


TRACE 3-D is a FORTRAN program that calculates the envelopes, centroids, and phase-space ellipses of a bunched beam, including linear space-charge forces, as it propagates through a beamline. Magnetic elements, including bends, quads, doublets, triplets, and a wiggler are modeled, as well as a number of radiofrequency elements, including RF gaps, RFQ cells, CCL tanks, and RF cavities.

Drop-In Palettes Available
PowerTrace works with drop-in palettes that provide additional custom elements for a variety of modeling tasks. When installed, these palettes fully integrate with PowerTrace:

Professional Version Available
The Professional version includes the complete FORTRAN source code for TRACE 3-D so that users can create their own custom versions of PowerTrace with TRACE 3-D.
