PrOpacEOS Major Features

  • Computes equation-of-state and opacity data for single-element or multi-element plasmas.
  • Includes an easy-to-use graphical user interface for problem setup and viewing results.
  • Includes on-line documentation, with direct access to Help pages from widgets.
  • Computes EOS and opacity data for LTE plasmas and optically thin non-LTE plasmas.
  • Can be run in batch mode with an existing workspace.
  • Supports the use of simple and custom grids for:
      • Temperature
      • Density
      • Photon energy
  • Includes graphics package for visualizing results for:
      • Frequency-dependent opacities
      • Temperature- and density-dependent EOS and opacity results
  • Includes the following atomic processes in collisional-radiative modeling*:
      • Collisional ionization, recombination, excitation, and deexcitation
      • Photoionization and stimulated recombination
      • Photoexcitation and stimulated emission
      • Spontaneous decay
      • Radiative recombination
      • Dielectronic recombination, autoionization, and electron capture
  • Includes Doppler, natural (including autoionization contributions), and Stark broadening in line profile modeling.
  • Utilizes ATBASE suite of atomic codes for supplying:
      • Photoionization cross-sections
      • Oscillator strengths
      • Collisional ionization cross-sections
      • Collisional excitation cross-sections
      • Atomic level energies and transition energies
      • Dielectronic recombination, autoionization, and electron capture rates
  • Can be used to view previously calculated PrOpacEOS data files or SESAME files.
  • Interfaces with other Prism applications:
      • AtomicModelBuilder: a user-friendly tool for setting up custom atomic models
      • HELIOS: reads PrOpacEOS data and supports viewing of EOS and opacity data
