Trak Charged Particle Toolkit

Charged-particle tracking, beam transport and electron/ion gun design

The Trak Charged Particle Toolkit is the most advanced 2D code available on any computer platform for charged-particle optics and gun design. The program applies high-accuracy finite-element techniques to calculate single-particle orbits or to simulate steady-state beams in 2D (planar or cylindrical) electric and magnetic fields. Features include effects of beam-generated electric and magnetic fields, automatic generation of input distributions, self-consistent space-charge-limited emission, and field emission. Applications include electron and ion guns, electro-optical devices, electron microscopes, vacuum microelectronics and relativistic high-power beams. The package includes five linked components: Mesh (automatically create conformal triangular meshes), EStat (electric-field solutions, plots and analysis), PerMag (magnetic-field solutions, plots and analysis) and Trak (calculate trajectories and regenerate fields, plots and analysis) and GenDist (plots and analysis of particle distributions).

Easy-to-understand instruction manual with a library of read-to-run examples.
Combine effects of calculated electric and magnetic fields from independent meshes.
Self-consistent space-charge-limited emission from multiple sources.
High accuracy orbit calculations, even near electrode surfaces
Precision interpolation to stopping planes for lens characterization.
Interactive orbit and field plotting postprocessor with built-in hardcopy support.
Automatic calculation of self-consistent plasma surfaces for ion extraction.
Advanced secondary- emission models and automatic tracking of multi-generational electron histories.
Automatic calculations of emittance and current density.
Formatted text output files make it easy to transfer information to user applications or to mathematical analysis programs.
