Comparison of electrostatic and time dependent simulation codes for modeling a pulsed power gun

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

This paper is a result of a group of simulations used to determine the optimal parameters for a pulsed power electron gun. As electrostatic codes such as PBGUNS tend to be cheaper, easier to use, and have less stringent computational requirements than time dependent codes such as MAFIA, it was desirable to determine those regimes in which the electrostatic codes agree with time dependent models. It was also necessary to identify those problems that required time dependence, such as longitudinal variation in an electron bunch. PBGUNS was then used to perform the bulk of the optimization, with only those issues ... continued below

Description

This paper is a result of a group of simulations used to determine the optimal parameters for a pulsed power electron gun. As electrostatic codes such as PBGUNS tend to be cheaper, easier to use, and have less stringent computational requirements than time dependent codes such as MAFIA, it was desirable to determine those regimes in which the electrostatic codes agree with time dependent models. It was also necessary to identify those problems that required time dependence, such as longitudinal variation in an electron bunch. PBGUNS was then used to perform the bulk of the optimization, with only those issues that required time dependence being resolved with MAFIA. Good agreement in transverse phase space values was found between the electrostatic code (PBGUNS) and the time dependent code (MAFIA) for a variety of pulse durations, even for pulse durations short compared to the electron transit time of the accelerating region. To obtain values for the longitudinal energy spread and the variation of the transverse phase space across the bunch, it was necessary to use MAFIA. The electrostatic codes have an advantage in terms of required computational resources and run time, and are therefore a good choice for modeling jobs in which the longitudinal energy spread is unimportant.
