This is a simulation of an electron optic test case to verify the electrostatic solvers of our Simulation Software. In the test case, a cylindrical electron beam is shot through three consecutive square tube, where the voltage of the middle tube section is positively charged, while the outside tubes are grounded. The electric field of the system will focus the trajectory of the electron beam and distort the beam to become square due to the geometry. The electrons are accelerated when entering the middle tube section, and are decelerated when exiting the middle tube due to the electric fields.
The video shows a cross section of the NEAT-Next thruster. The process gas is being injected from the back of the thruster and is displayed as discrete particles.
Particles colliding with the wall cause erosion on the surface. The accumulated erosion yield can be seen in the color change of the wall segments.
