Kitware dashboard developed for use with SLAC’s ACE3P software

This animation shows an accelerator cavity whose design is being optimized with the help of a dashboard Kitware developed for use with SLAC’s ACE3P software. The waves of color traveling through the modeled accelerator cavity represent electromagnetic fields that pull electrons away from the cavity surfaces – a nuisance that designers want to minimize. Rather than type in instructions for running the simulation, designers can use pull-down tabs and other simple tools to set the specifications for their simulations.
