2nd harmonic gyrotron simulation with CST STUDIO SUITE
Proc. IEEE Int. Vacuum Electronics Conf. (IVEC), 2017, Apr, pp. 1–2
The 2nd harmonic operation of a Gyrotron is very attractive as the B-field can be reduced by half. However, due to the sensitivity of this operation, it is challenging to simulate this efficiently in a 3D Particle in Cell (PIC) code. This paper shows aspects to keep in mind when simulating a 2nd harmonic Gyrotron within the PIC code of CST STUDIO SUITE®.
