Three-Dimensional PIC Simulation of Electron Plasmas

Abstract

The three-dimensional evolution of a pure electron plasma is studied by means of a particle-in-cell code which solves the drift-Poisson system where kinetic effects in the motion parallel to the magnetic field are taken into account. Different results relevant to the nonlinear dynamics of trapped plasmas and low-energy electron beams are presented.
