LASY 0.2.0 Documentation#
Warning: This library is currently in development, and it is, at this stage, only meant to be used/tested by developers. We plan on releasing the first version for general users (i.e. beta version) by summer 2023.
lasy (LAser SYmple manipulator) is a Python library that facilitates the initialization of complex laser pulses, in simulations of laser-plasma interactions.
lasy offers many ways to define complex laser pulses (e.g. from commonly-known analytical formulas, from experimental measurements, etc.) and offers pre-processing functionalities (e.g. propagation, re-normalization, geometry conversion).
The laser field is then exported in a standardized file, that can be read by external simulation codes.
The code is open-source and hosted on github. Contributions are welcome!
