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.
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.
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.
- Trapped primary and secondary charged particles
- Secondary and backscattered particles from conductive and lossy
- Particle beam charging of lossy dielectric materials
- Bohm current density plasma free surface emission
- Kinetic plasma simulation
- Particle beam interaction with gasses
- Ion beam neutralization
- Self magnetic fields
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

The Charged Particle Beam course is generally run during our
User Group meeting and is not normally offered during our
designated course weeks but can be arranged at a mutually
convenient time if desired. Please contact us via our contact page or at
