Numerical model of the radio-frequency magnetic presheath including wall impurities

Here, we present a numerical fluid plasma model able to capture the enhanced sputtering yield from the Faraday Screen and the Plasma-Facing Components of an Ion Cyclotron Resonance Heating antenna in

Modeling enhanced impurity sputtering due to rf sheaths in front of ICRH actuators

One of the main concerns over using the Ion Cyclotron Resonance Heating (ICRH) is the enhanced impurity sputtering phenomenon due to the emergence of RF sheaths near the Faraday Screen of the ICRH



Continuum Kinetic and Multi-Fluid Simulations of Classical Sheaths

The kinetic study of plasma sheaths is critical, among other things, to understand the deposition of heat on walls, the effect of sputtering, and contamination of the plasma with detrimental

Mixed semi-Lagrangian/finite difference methods for plasma simulations

In this paper, we present an efficient algorithm for the long time behavior of plasma simulations. We will focus on 4D drift-kinetic model, where the plasma's motion occurs in the plane perpendicular

Convected Scheme Simulations of the Electron Distribution Function in a Positive Column Plasma

A numerical procedure that provides an accurate and efficient solution of the Boltzmann equation in cylindrical geometry with coordinates (ρ, v) is discussed. The procedure, based primarily on the

Ion energy-angle distribution functions at the plasma-material interface in oblique magnetic fields

The ion energy-angle distribution (IEAD) at the wall of a magnetized plasma is of fundamental importance for the determination of the material processes occurring at the plasma-material interface,

A Model for Collision Processes in Gases. I. Small Amplitude Processes in Charged and Neutral One-Component Systems

A kinetic theory approach to collision processes in ionized and neutral gases is presented. This approach is adequate for the unified treatment of the dynamic properties of gases over a continuous

Vlasov simulations of plasma-wall interactions in a magnetized and weakly collisional plasma

A Vlasov code is used to model the transition region between an equilibrium plasma and an absorbing wall in the presence of a tilted magnetic field, for the case of a weakly collisional plasma

The Semi-Lagrangian Method for the Numerical Resolution of the Vlasov Equation

The numerical resolution of kinetic equations and, in particular, of Vlasov-type equations is performed most of the time using particle in cell methods which consist in describing the time evolution
