Multipactor Tutorial

In this tutorial you will learn how to run your first Multipactor simulation with SPARK3D. It presents a guided example for which the whole Multipactor analysis process is explained step-by-step using lowpass_HFSS.spkx file located in Examples->TutorialExamples folder, distributed with the installation of the software. It is divided in 5 parts:

  1. Preliminaries shows you how to create new models by importing EM solutions from compatible external EM software.
  2. Computing voltage contains the procedure to calculate the voltage in a certain area of the device using Paraview.
  3. Specifying Regions describes you how to define regions of interest where the analysis of Multipactor can be focused.
  4. Running a Multipactor configuration. The main parameters are set for Multipactor analysis and the simulation is launched. An overview of the Multipactor output is given.
    1. Running Multipactor video. We set the parameters to record Multipactor video and describe how to play it.
  5. Analysis of Multipactor Results shows you how to interpret and visualize the output data.
