I managed to do a simulation in vacuum with SPIS. The only things you have to do is :

  • set the electrons and ions densities to 0.0
  • fix the S/C potential (apply the patch described in this topic \http://spis.onecert.fr/forums/viewtopic.php?t=34 and set initPot to the desired value and electricCircuitIntegrate to 0)
  • set the plasmaDt variable to a non null value (I guess lower than "duration")
I did not make any comparison yet with analytical results, but at least it works and the results "look" good Benoit
