In this paper with use of Particle in Cell (PIC) simulation method in one dimension the dynamic of ion acoustic soliton is studied. in this method the ions are monitored as particles and the electrons are assumed to be in thermal equilibrium. The dispersion relation of ion acoustic waves is investigated. The results are in good agreement with analytical results showing that in linear regime our code works correctly. Considering the solution of nonlinear KdV equation as initial perturbation, the propagation of ion acoustic soliton is studied. It is shown that the shape and the velocity of ion acoustic soliton is preserved during propagation through the plasma.

    The carbon vacancy (VC) is a prevailing point defect in high-purity 4H-SiC epitaxial layers, and it plays a decisive role in controlling the charge carrier lifetime. One concept of reducing the VC-concentration is based on carbon self-ion implantation in a near surface layer followed by thermal...

    Spin noise spectroscopy (SNS) is the perfect tool to investigate electron spin dynamics in semiconductors at thermal equilibrium. We simulate SNS measurements which utilize real-time fast Fourier transformation instead of an ordinary spectrum analyzer and show that ultrafast digitizers with low...

    When an ultrashort laser pulse irradiates a metal, the electron system absorbs the energy of the laser beam and is driven out of thermal equilibrium. Due to electron-electron collisions a new thermodynamical equilibrium state within the electron system is established in a characteristic time,...
