  • Calculation of Spectra
  • Power density calculations on arbitrary shaped surfaces in 3D
  • Flux density calculations
  • Multi-particle simulations
  • Non-zero emittance beams
  • Mixed-particle beams
  • Importing of field data in several formats
  • Users who are interested in contributing to further development

This software package provides

  • A user interface in python
  • Multi-threaded operation
  • Simple utilities for GPU computing
  • Support for grid computing
  • Support for MPI
