RHYNO - Simulation software

Rhyno is a numerical simulation based on the Strong Field Approximation (SFA), which calculates the single atom spectra and the propagation of the produced light in a HHG process.

Rhyno was developed at the Helmholtz-Zentrum, Berlin für Materiaien und Energie (HZB), Germany, by Torsten Leitner, as part of his diploma thesis. It is an open source, non-commercial product.

Rhyno is maintained by Torsten Leitner at HZB; the manual will be provided on this website soon. Please contact him for further information or questions on Rhyno.

If you download Rhyno for the first time or you are not registered, please register yourself by e-Mail. All registered users will be notified by e-Mail on new information on the code (found bugs, new features etc).

Future Features:

  • Advanced file I/O:
    - binary data dump
    - initialize simulation with external laser data
  • Rhyno as shared library -> callable from IDL, Matlab etc...
  • full 3D-Mode with transversal carthesian grid
