The code library is aimed for the three-dimensional simulation of the electron cyclotron resonance (ECR) plasma and ion production in an ECR ion source. The particle-in-cell method allows studying the detailed characteristics of plasma, taking into account distribution functions of particles real self and external fields, particle-particle interactions, and others.
