A Monte Carlo simulation of a magnetized cathode-glow region for a carbon dioxide laser discharge has been undertaken. The computational findings appear to confirm recent observations that the magnetic stabilization effect is due primarily to a Lorentz driven mixing motion of charge carriers at or near the cathode electrode surface.

    The discharge processes and striation phenomenon in large-gap coplanar plasma display panels (PDPs) were investigated by particle-in-cell/Monte Carlo collision. The current pulse on electrodes and the delay time of discharge in simulation are consistent with the experimental results in large-gap...

    Nitride heterostructures based on AlN, GaN and their alloys have found extensive applications in high-power, high frequency, low noise circuit design. The use of ensemble Monte Carlo approach allows us to examine noise while electrons move in the channel with a varying field profile. This is...

    The properties of all materials arise largely from the quantum mechanics of their constituent electrons under the influence of the electric field of the nuclei. The solution of the underlying many-electron Schrödinger equation is a 'non-polynomial hard' problem, owing to the complex interplay...

    This paper is the second part of a continuing study of straight-channel microchannel plate (MCP)-based x-ray detectors. Such detectors are a useful diagnostic tool for two-dimensional, time-resolved imaging and time-resolved x-ray spectroscopy. To interpret the data from such detectors, it is...

    Secondary electrons produced by Compton scattering and photoelectric effect contribute to the photon field through conversion mechanisms like bremsstrahlung and inner-shell impact ionization (ISII). Because electrons interact continuously, the solution of the coupled transport problem is complex...

    A multipactor discharge is a resonant condition for electrons in an alternating electric field. This discharge can be disruptive to RF circuits, cavities, and resonators by detuning the circuit and/or by seeding an arc with a partially developed multipactor discharge. The Coaxial Multipactor...

    In this paper, we present a 1D Particle in Cell with Monte Carlo Collisions model, developed in order to calculate the energy balance in a micro-discharge, under conditions similar to those of a Plasma Display Panel (PDP) cell. The discharge takes place in a xenon-neon (10%–;90%) mixture...
