The most important thing we build is trust


Hands on software training course for charge particle beams and related device design using Opera.

A new two-day in-depth program including lectures, discussions, and examples addressing advanced primary and secondary charged particle and lossy dielectric physics capabilities incorporated into the latest SCALA code.


Particle accellerator modelling


The course includes discussions on good modelling practice for simulating trapped and un-trapped primary and secondary particle generation, interaction of beams with surfaces and gasses, beam forming using a new kinetic plasma simulation method, beam charging of lossy dielectrics, and beam power on surfaces.


Particle beam Emission Modelling

Emission models

Many emission models will be discussed including Bohm current density plasma free surface, thermionic including virtual cathode, field effect emission, electron impact ionization of gas, secondary and backscattered particles from surfaces, ion-electron pair production with energy and current loss from gas interaction.



  1. Trapped primary and secondary charged particles
  2. Secondary and backscattered particles from conductive and lossy dielectric surfaces
  3. Particle beam charging of lossy dielectric materials
  4. Bohm current density plasma free surface emission
  5. Kinetic plasma simulation
  6. Particle beam interaction with gasses
  7. Ion beam neutralization
  8. Self magnetic fields


Multiphysics-In-Particle-Beams- Backscattering


Combined electric and magnetic fields may be simulated along with lossy dielectric materials including the influence of particle beam insulator charging. Heat transfer from beam power may also be computed.
