Particle simulation of ion optics

Particle In Cell Consulting LLC is a small California-based business providing services to the electric propulsion, space environment, and contamination control communities. We specialize in:

  • Developing plasma and rarefied gas simulation codes based on the Particle In Cell (PIC), Direct Simulation Monte Carlo (DSMC), or CFD/MHD methods
  • Performing molecular and particulate contamination transport analyses for vacuum or aerospace industries
  • Modeling particle-based instruments such as ion spectrometers, electrostatic analyzers, or ion gauges
  • Simulating electric propulsion devices such as Hall Effect or Ion thrusters
  • Assisting with general scientific computing needs such as optimization, parallelization, and data analysis

Please contact us if you would like to submit an RFP or have any general questions. We also offer plasma simulation courses and a scientific computing blog. Subscribe to our newsletter by entering your email address below:
