Short Description

NUBEAM 3D neutral beam density in a box from TRANSP (beam-in-box)


Neutral Beam, Neutral Density

Long Description

The BOXN0 OMFIT module is a post-processor for TRANSP ACFILE ouptut using NBSBOX in the namelist. After the TRANSP ACFILEs are fetched, the user can extract a netCDF file via the ntcc executable boxn0. This netCDF file contains the 3D box and neutral densities (beam, species) selected by the user. Post-processing provides visualization of the neutral density and far-field optics beam paramters fit by an ideal diverging gaussian beam.

Typical workflows

  1. Run TRANSP with NUBEAM and ACFILE output

    • Fetch TRANSP run

    • Open BOXN0 GUI and point the GUI to the ACFILE (<runid>.DATA<#>)

    • Run boxn0 to extract netCDF file

    • Plot neutral density

Supported devices

  • DIII-D, NSTX, C-Mod, JET
