CST PARTICLE STUDIO® Stationary Particle Tracking Solver

The stationary particle tracking solver tracks particles based on the Lorentz Force equation in pre-calculated electromagnetic fields. These fields can be either static electric fields, static magnetic fields or eigenmodes.

The space charge effect on the electric field can be taken into account by the Gun Iteration option.

Several emission models including fixed, space charge limited, thermionic and field emission are available. Furthermore, secondary electron emissions can be simulated.

Results such as beam current, emittance, perveance, collision information are directly provided by the solver. Secondary information (e.g. the beam envelope) can be evaluated with powerful post processing tools.

Typical applications for this solver include electron guns, collectors, bending magnets and multipacting studies for cavities.
