PBO Lab TRACE 3-D Application Module

Don't struggle with another beamline simulation task without this valuable tool!

The TRACE 3-D Application Module is useful for designing radiofrequency accelerator and transfer beamlines, especially if high current beams are to be used. In addition to standard magnetic optics elements, the TRACE 3-D Module includes a variety of radiofrequency (RF) optics models. These include a RFQ cell, RF gap (with and without higher harmonics), RF Cavity (primarily for electron linacs) and CCL (coupled cavity linac). There are fourteen types of parameter fitting and beam-matching options available for use with the TRACE 3-D Module. TRACE 3-D supports the simulation of 3-D (bunched) beam space charge in the equivalent uniform beam envelope approximation. This capability makes TRACE 3-D argueably the best available code for designing high-current transfer lines containing magnetic and RF elements. The PBO Lab TRACE 3-D Module also has extensions available for simulating continuous (un-bunched) beams and electrostatic elements (see ElectroStatic Palette Module below) giving the Module unique capabilities not offered in other codes. Beam-loaded traveling wave accelerators (see Traveling Wave Palette Module below) can be modeled and simulated as well.



TRACE 3-D is a FORTRAN program that calculates envelopes, centroids, and phase-space ellipses of a bunched beam, including linear space charge forces, as it propogates through a beamline. This accelerator beam dynamics code also supports fourteen types of fitting or beam-matching options. Also available for the PBO Lab TRACE 3-D Application Module are the ElectroStatic Palette Module and the TravelingWave Palette Module.
