Creative Interaction for Plasma Physics
Particle accelerator has mainly used in nuclear field only because of the large scale of facility. However, since laser-plasma particle accelerator, which has smaller size and spends less cost, developed, the availability of this accelerator is expended to various research fields such as industrial and medical. In these, real-time and interactive applications, accelerating the compute time is a critical problem. We conduct a simulation discussed the method of visualization of multivariate data in three dimensional space by using colored volume rendering and surface rendering. This system offers real-time 3D images via convert various file format comes from PIC simulation into OpenGL texture type to analyze and modify plasma data. We also suggest new method to visualize plasma data by using alpha shape to achieve a different level of detail for the given plasma based particle acceleration data. Many scientists are not familiar with the concepts of programming languages. Therefore, we employ the visual- scripting engine to define the rendering context of plasma physics.
