During this compact course you will familiarize yourself with the key aspects of continuum-based plasma modelling. You will develop a grid-based tool for simulating plasmas that consist of a background gas, ions end electrons. To that end you will learn about the subtleties involved in representing the Poisson equation for the electrostatic field and the drift-diffusion equations for the electron and ion transport on a discrete set of mesh points. You will implement and test a C++ or MATLAB code for a spatially resolved and time-dependent reactor plasma.
The hands-on course will expose a mix of physical modelling and mathematical and computational methods and is an excellent primer for people who are interested in computational methods.
- Plasma Modelling Overview
- Fluid Modelling Quick Start: Fick-diffusion.
- Fluid Modelling in Depth
- Putting it all together: a parallel-plate reactor model
This is a hands-on course!
Due to the current situation, the block course will be postponed. Dates will follow.
