RadiaSoft scientists and engineers model a large variety of particle accelerator systems, including free-electron lasers, storage ring light sources, X-ray beamlines, electron linear accelerators, high-intensity proton synchrotrons, and accumulator rings. Directed energy systems can be found in compact X-ray sources, high-power radar, electromagnetic pulse sources, and THz radiation.
We perform cutting-edge research and actively collaborate with experts at laboratories and universities to develop innovative solutions within challenging problem domains. Our PhD-level experts can be made available as consultants as you expand into new areas, or you can outsource components of your project entirely to our research team.
Areas of Expertise
Particle bunch propagation through a radiofrequency cavity.
Our areas of expertise include:
- Charged beam dynamics
- Thermomechanical analysis
- X-ray optics and ray tracing
- Parallel high-performance computing
- Materials modeling
- Algorithm development and mathematical modeling
Our latest simulation projects have involved:
- Beam dynamics in particle accelerators
- Beam interactions with matter (as well as the resulting activation)
- Electron cooling
- X-ray optics
- Electromagnetic modes in complex structures
- Synchrotron radiation
- Beam-plasma and laser-plasma interactions
- Radiation shielding
- Outgassing in vacuum systems
- Hydrodynamics and plasma fluids
We develop solutions for complex problem domains via the COMSOL® software and C/C++, Java®, Python, and Fortran codes. In addition, we create intuitive graphical user interfaces (GUIs), accessible via web browsers, for various specialized codes and models.
