Concurrent Simulation of Neutral Flow in the GEC Reference Cell

  title={Concurrent Simulation of Neutral Flow in the GEC Reference Cell},
  author={Marc Rieffel and Mikhail Ivanov and Sadasivan Shankar and Stephen Taylor},
  journal={Concurrency - Practice and Experience},
This paper describes the physics and summarizes the associated computational techniques behind a novel concurrent simulation method currently in use for studying the neutral dynamics inside three-dimensional plasma reactors. The technique is intended to cope with low pressure ow (less than 1.5 Torr) in realistic geometries, where the mean free path is on the order of the characteristic length of the reactor. The simulation technique uses the Direct Simulation Monte Carlo method to accurately… CONTINUE READING
