Product Specification

Product Name: TRANSPORT* Application Module for PBO Lab (Particle Beam Optics Laboratory) 2.1, Standard Version

Product #: PPC-PB01-S210

Description: The Particle Beam Optics Laboratory (PBO Lab) is a graphic user interface environment developed for use in the design and analysis of particle optics systems and accelerator beam lines. The TRANSPORT Module requires the PBO Lab 2.1 Basic Package, and provides a fully integrated TRANSPORT computation engine module. The PBO Lab 2.1 Basic Package is summarized in a separate Product Specification. TRANSPORT is a matrix multiplication program developed for modeling charged particle optics. The program is particularly useful for the design and simulation of static-magnetic beam transport systems, although it can be applied to other problems in accelerator design as well. The version included with PBO Lab has the ability to model beam lines to first-, second- and third-order. TRANSPORT has a variety of fitting and problem constraint capabilities, and can be used to examine the effects of field errors, component misalignments and similar non-ideal beam line conditions. The PBO Lab Basic Package and add-on Application Modules are based on the Multi-Platform Shell for Particle Accelerator Related Codes (S.P.A.R.C. MP) software technology.

Recommended System Requirements:

At somewhat diminished performance this product may also be used with the following minimum system requirements:

Minimum System Requirements:

*The TRANSPORT add-on module incorporates the TRANSPORT program maintained and distributed by Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory and the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center.
