2006 (English)In: Journal of Plasma Physics, ISSN 0022-3778, E-ISSN 1469-7807, Vol. 72, no 6, 1133-1137 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
A newly developed numerical model calculating the distribution and damping of radiofrequency fields by sloshing ions is presented. The model solves time-harmonic Maxwell's equations written in terms of the electric field. It uses a two-dimensional grid and a Fourier series in the third coordinate and is based on a non-staggered mesh not aligned along the steady magnetic field. The numerical stability of the scheme is discussed, and the convergence analysis is presented.
