Poster 70: Numerical Method and Parallelization for the Computation of Coherent Synchrotron Radiation

Authors: Boqian Shen (Rice University, Los Alamos National Laboratory)

Abstract: The purpose of this work is to develop and parallelize an accurate and efficient numerical method for the computation of synchrotron radiation from relativistic electrons in the near field. The high-brilliance electron beam and coherent short-wavelength light source provide a powerful method to understand the microscopic structure and dynamics of materials. Such a method supports a wide range of applications including matter physics, structural biology, and medicine development. To understand the interaction between the beam and synchrotron radiation, an accurate and efficient numerical simulation is needed. With millions of electrons, the computational cost of the field would be large. Thus, multilevel parallelism and performance portability are desired since modern supercomputers are getting more complex and heterogeneous. The performance model and performance analysis are presented.
