Latest Open Access publication about advances and applications of WISER wavefront propagation simulation code

In the frame of PaNOSC WP5 – Virtual Neutron and X-ray Laboratory (VINYL), a new publication has been released in the SPIE Digital Library: Proceedings Volume 11493, Advances in Computational Methods for X-Ray Optics V; 114930B (2020).


In this work, the advances in the development of WISER are reported.

WISER is a wave optics-based simulation library targeted at the simulation of the focusing performance of grazing X-Ray optics systems, which accounts for the metrological data of figure error and roughness power spectral density. First presented in 2016 (phase-I), WISER inherits and expands the mathematical concepts of its ancestor, WISE, originally conceived for X-Ray telescopes and then applied to free electron lasers. Thanks to its flexible framework, WISER easily allowed to simulate multi-element systems, as synchrotron and free electron laser beamlines. In phase-II (2020), WISER is further improved and it is delivered as fully integrable with OASYS, the graphical canvas gathering the mostly used X-Ray computation tools. In the following, we will illustrate the architecture of the library and present some examples of its applications.
