Particle in Cell Simulations & Development


We support our experimental efforts with both theoretical studies and Particle-in-Cell (PIC) simulations. Here, our emphasize lies on methods to improve the electron beam quality in terms of divergence, emittance and energy spread, as well as diagnostic methods. In order to provide ever more accurate modelling tools and making them available to the research community, we actively contribute to (open-source) PIC code development together with our collaborators from Lawrence Berkeley National Lab.
