This example describes a rf-photo injector, as part of the Argonne Wakefield Accelerator (AWA). The model based on the paper by N.R. Neveu et al., and benchmarks three codes: GPT, ASTRA and OPAL.
Here we will run the rf-photo injector (OPAL_t)
If you do not have already access to OPAL, you can visit the download page. In
case OPAL is on your cluster please check with the administrator how to use. PSI user please click here.
For this project we need input files, that you obtain by clicking on links below:
For this calculation the initial conditions are all set in the input file. Run OPAL with
opal RFphotoinjector.in | tee RFphotoinjector.out
For postprocessing visit here.
The results for the case with a 323 mesh and 1E5 macro particles are shown in the following figures:
