2017 NLTE Code Comparison Workshop National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Invitation Only


Advanced collisional-radiative (CR) models are extensively used in plasma spectroscopy to analyze plasma kinetics and spectra produced far from local thermodynamic equilibrium (LTE). Non-LTE atomic models also play a critical role in radiation-hydrodynamic simulations used to help design plasma experiments. It is therefore not surprising that verification and validation (V&V) of these complex CR models are of significant interest. Since experimental benchmarks for validation are extremely challenging, computational experiments and comparisons are one of the primary tools for V&V of CR codes. The NLTE Workshops aim at development of such tools and techniques.
