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 codes XGC0, XGCa and XGC1, please download and fill out the PPPL collaborative license Theory Code Request Form. Access from foreign countries may be subject to export/DOE control. XGC codes are large scale, susceptible to software stack upgrades, and require a substantial computational resource to simulate realistic plasmas. Please send the completed form along with a brief description of the intended project (via e-mail, fax or mail) to
