SAD is a computer code developed at KEK since 1986 (http://acc-physics.kek.jp/SAD/index.html) for design/simulation/operation of accelerator beams. SAD has been applied for a number of accelerators including TRISTAN, KEK-ATF, SLAC-FFTB, KEKB, Photon Factory, J-PARC, BEPC-II, and SuperKEKB. It has been also used for deign works of future machines such as Muon Collider, ILC, CEPC, and FCC-ee. SAD features:
- Beam optics calculation and matching up to 6D
- Full symplectic 6D particle tracking, including weak-strong beam-beam effects, space charge, and wake fields
- Beam envelope calculation with synchrotron radiation, intrabeam scattering, and space charge effects
- Accelerator and beam operation with EPICS interface
- A Mathematica-like script language for programming, data manipulation, and graphics with object-oriented feature
Two SAD workshops have been held in 1998 and 2006:
We think the workshop has at least two goals this time:
- Exchange experiences (either good or bad) on using SAD at various projects
- Learn other superior accelerator codes in the world to consider the future of SAD
We welcome your attendance.
