LSP Suite

LSP Suite  

The LSP Suite is a 3-D electromagnetic particle-in-cell (PIC) code designed for large scale plasma simulations. The code calculates the interaction between charged particles (electrons and ions) and external and self-generated electric and magnetic fields. The code started with SBIR funding in 1995 and became commercialized in 2002. Some current applications are E-beam driven radiography, pulsed power accelerator design, heavy-ion fusion, KrF e-beam pumped laser, petawatt laser-plasma interaction, and plasma reactor.

The LSP Suite code runs on Windows and Linux, and on serial and parallel computers. It consists of a graphical user interface GLSP to input geometric and other parameters, a physics code LSP which runs the calculation, and a graphical postprocessor P4 for viewing results.
