Einzel Lens

Model ID: 14405


An Einzel lens is an electrostatic device used for focusing charged particle beams. It may be found in cathode ray tubes, ion beam and electron beam experiments, as well as in ion propulsion systems. This particular model consists of three axially aligned cylinders: the outer cylinders are grounded and the cylinder in the middle is held at a fixed voltage. The 3D electrostatic field is computed with COMSOL Multiphysics and the particle trajectories are determined with the Particle Tracing Module.

This model was built using the following:
