DescriptionTurning the current experimental plasma accelerator state-of-the-art from a promising technology into mainstream scientific tools depends critically on high-performance, high-fidelity modeling of complex processes that develop over a wide range of space and time scales. As part of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Exascale Computing Project, a team composed of LBNL, SLAC and LLNL researchers is developing a new plasma accelerator simulation tool: WarpX. We will present the code structure and how it articulates around its main components: the new Particle-In-Cell Scalable Application Resource (PICSAR) and the adaptive mesh refinement library AMReX, which are combined with redesigned elements of the Warp code, in the new WarpX software. The status, examples of convergence, scaling and applications will be presented.
