Jan Schmidt submitted an update to the tikz-palattice package. Version number/date: 2.2 / 2015-03-01 License type: lppl1.3 Summary description: Draw particle accelerator lattices with TikZ. Announcement text:
- added \northlabels and \southlabels, which is easier to handle than \turnlabels - minor legend improvements (label position is now independent of current lattice settings) - minor documentation improvements
This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/graphics/pgf/contrib/tikz-palattice/ More information is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/tikz-palattice We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org . Please join a users group; see http://www.tug.org/usergroups.html .
Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Petra Rübe-Pugliese

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.
