The computer program LIAR for the simulation and modeling of high performance linacs

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

High performance linear accelerators are the central components of the proposed next generation of linear colliders. They must provide acceleration of up to 750 GeV per beam while maintaining small normalized emittances. Standard simulation programs, mainly developed for storage rings, did not meet the specific requirements for high performance linacs with high bunch charges and strong wakefields. The authors present the program. LIAR (LInear Accelerator Research code) that includes single and multi-bunch wakefield effects, a 6D coupled beam description, specific optimization algorithms and other advanced features. LIAR has been applied to and checked against the existing Stanford Linear Collider (SLC), ... continued below

LIAR has been applied to and checked against the existing Stanford Linear Collider (SLC), the linacs of the proposed Next Linear Collider (NLC) and the proposed Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) at SLAC. Its modular structure allows easy extension for different purposes. The program is available for UNIX workstations and Windows PC`s.
