Title: Quasi-3D space charge simulation

Abstract

The longitudinal space charge effect is simulated by binning the longitudinal beam profile in order to calculate the force on the bins using the binned particle distribution via FFT, and applying momentum kick based upon this space charge force to macro-particles. Usually, the longitudinal space charge kick is calculated once per turn since the longitudinal profile doesn't change much in a single turn. Besides, the longitudinal profile is used as a weighting factor for the transverse space charge force. The transverse space charge effect is simulated by projecting the 3-D beam to a 2-D Gaussian distribution in order to use the complex error function to compute the transverse space charge force, and applying this space charge force to macro-particles. One transverse space charge calculation per scale length of the beam shape variation requires at least ten transverse space charge force calculations per betatron oscillation.

  • The potential use of high-energy ion beams as a source of thermonuclear pellet ignition energy has increased the importance of understanding high-current beam transport. Computer simulation using particle codes promises to be a useful tool in gaining that understanding. A series of simulations is presented in which the numerical parameters are systematically varied to illustrate the purely numerical effects on these simulations in a physically interesting parameter range. It is found that the significant effects observed are essentially independent of the numerical parameters. It therefore appears that the numerical techniques are indeed capable of reliably predicting the behavior of actualmore » beam transport systems.« less
  • Photoinjectors in advanced high-energy accelerators reduce beam energy spreads and enhance undulator photon fluxes. Photoinjector design is difficult because of the substantial differences in time and spatial scales. This Phase I program explored an innovative technique, the local Taylor polynomial (LTP) formulation, for improving finite difference analysis of photoinjectors. This included improved weighting techniques, systematic formula for high order interpolation and electric field computation, and improved handling of space charge. The Phase I program demonstrated that the approach was powerful, accurate, and efficient. It handles space charge gradients better than currently available technology.
  • Progress during FY 82 has been balanced between the investigation of currently relevant issues by using existing numerical tools, and the development of new techniques for future simulations of increasing complexity. Simulations of the transverse beam dynamics were undertaken to examine the interaction between adjacent beams in a multi-beam system. For a modest number of beams at moderate intensities, final spot aberrations were not significant. At the same time, modifications to the transverse simulation code have been started in order to incorporate in the model both image charges and deviations from paraxial orbits likely to be significant in the electrostaticmore » quadrupole transport experiments under construction. Longitudinal simulations have been prformed to examine the detailed dynamics of space-charge-limited longitudinal bunching. Near-optimum bunching of the beam was shown to be possible for modest bunching factors up to about 25. The continuing program of close cooperation with LBL has resulted in simulations (1), done at LBL, which demonstrate that longitudinal bunch stability appears to be realizable for induction linace Heavy Ion Fusion systems. 5 references, 6 figures.« less
  • Progress during the FY83/84 period has involved both the use of existing numerical tools to investigate current issues, and the development of new techniques for future simulations of increasing sophistication. A balance has been sought with a view towards maximizing the utility of simulations to both present and future decisions in accelerator design. Emphasis during this contract has centered on investigating the nonlinear dynamics of a very low emittance beam with a realistic distribution function - especially when complications such as the image forces from a nearby conducting electrode are considered. A significant part of the effort during this periodmore » was also expended in spreading the simulation capabilities already developed. Versions of the SHIFT (Simulation of Heavy Ion Fusion Transport) series of computer codes have been installed on machines available to the HIF community. The enhanced availability of these codes has facilitated their use outside of NRL. For example, simulation results with a significant impact on MBE design were obtained at LBL using the MFECC Version of SHIFT-XY.« less
  • We describe the implementation of a prototype fully implicit method for solving three-dimensional quasi-steady state magnetic advection-diffusion problems. This method allows us to solve the magnetic advection diffusion equations in an Eulerian frame with a fixed, user-prescribed velocity field. We have verified the correctness of method and implementation on two standard verification problems, the Solberg-White magnetic shear problem and the Perry-Jones-White rotating cylinder problem.
