Title: Numerical method for determination of resonance electron velocities in periodic electric fields

A Monte Carlo method is applied for modeling of a plasma source with a periodic structure of a radiofrequency electric field. The method is modified in order to detect resonance increase of the electron energy at given velocities of the electrons as expected from theoretical considerations. The numerical model is validated by comparison with known analytical results. The applicability of the method for detection of resonance velocities in plasma sources with electric field variation parallel or perpendicular to the electric field vector is proven.
