Vorpal for Multipactor Studies

Vorpal is a flexible, multiplatform, Particle-in-Cell (PIC) simulation tool for running computationally intensive plasma, electromagnetic and electrostatic problems. Switch easily between 1, 2, or 3 dimensions then watch your model run lightning fast using algorithms designed for the exacting demands of high performance computing systems, whether on your laptop or supercomputing cluster.

Multipactor is serious problem that can be critical in the performance of high power vacuum microwave devices, radar systems, satellite communications and particle accelarators. Analytical models are limited to simple geometries with simplified assumptions about secondary emission so numerical studies are necessary both for prediction and supression analysis of the multipactor discharges in complex structures. Statistical sampling is needed since secondary emission is an inherently random process.

We have a number of features which make Vorpal particularly suitable for multipactor studies:
