WarpX: Exascale Modeling of Advanced Particle Accelerators

Principal Investigators: Jean-Luc Vay, lead, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL); Ann Almgren, LBNL

Particle accelerators are vital in US Department of Energy infrastructure for discovery science and university- and private-sector applications, with broad benefits to industry, security, energy, the environment, and medicine. New accelerator designs are needed to reduce size and cost; plasma-based particle accelerators stand apart in their potential for supporting electric fields much larger than current designs.
