Performance characteristics of a magnetic multipole plasma source depend strongly on the structure of the line-cusp magnetic fields and the behavior of the primary electrons. In order to design and improve the plasma source efficiently, a computer code was developed which can simulate primary electron orbits in the three-dimensional magnetic field generated in the source.
ELEORBIT solves the equation of motion for primary electrons in a multipole magnetic field from a JT-60 ion source. The magnetic field is determined using 3D analytical solution based on a magnetic charge model.
A Microsoft Windows OS is required. The installation was tested on Microsoft XP sp3 and Microsoft 7.
The sample input requires about 60 seconds.
A PC with Microsoft Windows installed.
