OPAL is a tool for charged-particle optics in accelerator structures and beam lines. Using the MAD OPAL is a parallel open source tool for charged-particle optics in linear

The OPAL framework makes it easy to add new features in the form of new C++ classes. It comes
in the following flavours:
OPAL-CYCL tracks particles with 3D space charge including neighbouring turns in cyclotrons and
FFAs with time as the independent variable.
OPAL-T can be used to model beam lines, linacs, rf-photo injectors and complete XFEL’s excluding
the undulator.
