This section allows you to download input files that correspond to different physical situations.
We provide two kinds of inputs:
inputsfiles, with parameters described here,
PICMI python input files, with parameters described here.
For a complete list of all example input files, have a look at our
It contains folders and subfolders with self-describing names that you can try. All these input files are automatically tested, so they should always be up-to-date.
Beam-driven electron acceleration¶
Laser-driven electron acceleration¶
The resolution of this 2D case is extremely low by default. You will need a computing cluster for adequate resolution of the target density, see comments in the input file.
The Monte-Carlo collision (MCC) model can be used to simulate capacitive discharges between parallel plates. The implementation has been tested against the benchmark results from Turner et. al. in Phys. Plasmas 20, 013507, 2013. The figure below shows a comparison of the ion density as calculated in WarpX (in June 2021) compared to the literature results (which can be found here). An input file with parameters for the 1st case is given below except the total simulation steps have been reduced.
This example needs additional calibration data for cross sections. Download this data alongside your inputs file and update the paths in the inputs file:
