Prism Software Tools

Prism Computational Sciences, Inc., develops software tools for research and development in the physical sciences and engineering. Its software simulation tools are applicable to both research and education in the areas of:
  plasma spectroscopy
  atomic physics
  radiation physics
  heat transfer.

Prism focuses on developing easy-to-use tools that are particularly well-suited for government and commercial laboratory research and development, and for graduate and undergraduate student research and education at universities and colleges.

Prism software features user-friendly graphical user interfaces and supporting visualization packages for easy viewing of results. Much of our software is designed to run on multiple platforms, including Windows, Linux, and Mac OSX.

PrismSPECT is a spectral analysis code designed to simulate the atomic and radiative properties of laboratory plasmas.

With PrismSPECT, users can easily investigate how plasma spectral properties change with plasma conditions.
