Three-Dimensional Gyrotron Simulation Using a High-Order Particle-in-Cell Method


A three-dimensional highly parallelized code for plasma simulation based on the Particle-In-Cell (PIC) approach using a discontinuous Galerkin method has been developed and validated within the instationary magneto-plasma dynamic (IMPD) thruster project1. With this code, it is for the first time possible to simulate the highly challenging gyrotron launcher… (More)
