Abstract

Because of the range of high charge states trapped in an EBIT, the Coulomb interactions can be expected to have a significant effect on ion motion. The large number of ions trapped makes a simulation involving the coordinates of each ion computationally expensive. Two ways to approximate the Coulomb interactions and also reduce the computational time are investigated.
