How to Become an XGC User

XGC codes are available for collaborative research. Users will be given access to the XGC GitHub repository. If you are interested in using the XGC code, please fill out the PPPL Theory Code Request Form, and the collaborative User Agreement. Access from foreign countries may be subject to export/DOE control. The XGC code is large scale, susceptible to software stack upgrades, and requires a substantial computational resource to simulate realistic plasmas. Please send the completed User Agreement along with a brief description of the intended project (via e-mail, fax or mail) to
