Title: Phase IIA Final Technical Report for "Development of software framework for x-Ray optics simulation and modeling"

Abstract

3rd generation synchrotron light sources and X-ray FELs have been remarkably productive scientific instruments, with more than 50 such facilities on 5 of the 7 world continents. There has been a recent reinvestment in such machines, with many planned upgrades and green-field facilities, some of which like ESRF-EBS and the APSU are already under construction. In such a facility, x-rays produced by high energy electrons pass down dedicated optical beamlines to reach a sample. The high energy x-rays are able to penetrate the sample and provide detailed structural information at the atomic scale. Such studies have produced scientific breakthroughs in fields as diverse as structural biology, geosciences, and even archaeology. RadiaSoft has developed, in collaboration with Brookhaven National Laboratory, a cloud based interface called Sirepo, to the Synchrotron Radiation Workshop (SRW) software package, which models the X-rays as they pass through these beamlines. Physical optics modeling allowed by SRW is particularly important in planning for this new generation of ultra-low emittance light sources, where the coherence is substantially increased, and ray tracing geometric optics methods may not be sufficient. Sirepo was developed during the project Phases I and II. During Phase IIa, there was a focus on increasing computational speedmore » for partially coherent calculations, and also integration with hardware and software of real beamlines at NSLS-II. In addition, a powerful optimization package was developed and we have done a number of improvements in Sirepo to polish the interface and make it even easier for users to access the sophisticated underlying physical optics software.« less
