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.
