[Archive] Full PIC simulations

Message by Alessandro Colovini:
Hello everyone
I’m simulating plume neutralization and I would like to model both ions and electrons as macroparticles in a PIC environment. How do you set SPIS to work in full-PIC mode?
I’ve already set ionDistrib and electronDistrib as PICVolDistrib, is that enough?

Message by Sébastien Hess:
yes it is. Note however that in this case you must resolve the Debye length and plasma frequency like for any PIC simulation scheme.

Thanks Sébastien,
I’ve already scaled my geometry to get the mesh under Debye length, and my Dt under plasma frequency :slight_smile:
