tikz-palattice – Draw particle accelerator lattices with TikZ

This pack­age al­lows for draw­ing a map of a par­ti­cle ac­cel­er­a­tor just by giv­ing a list of el­e­ments — sim­i­lar to lat­tice files for sim­u­la­tion soft­ware. The pack­age in­cludes 12 com­mon el­e­ment types like dipoles, quadrupoles, cav­i­ties, or screens, as well as au­to­matic la­bels with el­e­ment names, a leg­end, a rule, and an en­vi­ron­ment to fade out parts of the ac­cel­er­a­tor.

The co­or­di­nate of any el­e­ment can be saved and used for cus­tom TikZ draw­ings or an­no­ta­tions. Thereby, lat­tices can be con­nected to draw in­jec­tion/ex­trac­tion or even a com­plete ac­cel­er­a­tor fa­cil­ity.
