Visualization of Particle Beam Simulations in the IFMIF Accelerator

SESSION: Poster Reception

EVENT TYPE: Posters

TIME: 5:15PM - 7:00PM

AUTHOR(S):Bruno Thooris, Phu-Anh-Phi Nghiem, Daniel Pomarède

ROOM:New Orleans Theater Lobby

ABSTRACT:

Using the SDvision 3D visualization software developed within the framework of IDL Object Graphics at CEA/IRFU, we have visualized the travel of particles in the IFMIF-LIPAc accelerator. IFMIF (Internal Fusion Materials Irradiation Facility) is a Europe-Japan joint project aiming at constructing an accelerator-based neutron source, the world's most intense one, dedicated to study materials that must withstand the intense neutron flux coming from the fusion plasma of future Tokamaks. Tokamaks are the nuclear fusion reactors capable of producing energy in a similar way as in the Sun's core.
Simulations visualized here were made with a million macroparticles. To ensure that beam losses do not exceed 1W/m in the high energy part, simulations with 4,000,000,000 particles were performed, which lasted several weeks using fifty processors in parallel.
Stereoscopic video sequences in 3D were achieved at IRFU and a 15-minute movie has been realized for outreach purposes.
