Description

Abstract POP calculates the paths of moving charged particles through particle accelerators, analysers and focussing devices over suitable ranges of geometric and kinematic phase space such as those found emanating from ion sources or reaction spots on samples or targets in many types of experimental measurements. Within the limits of a lumped system, POP calculates a small group of such trajectories using chromatically accurate matrix techniques which are truncated to 2nd-order geometrically. The tra... Title of program: POP Catalogue Id: ACGK_v1_0 Nature of problem The design of particle accelerators, analysers and focusing devices requires calculation of the paths of moving charged particles through such systems. This must be done for suitable ranges of geometric and kinematic phase space such as those found emanating from ion sources or reaction spots on samples or targets in many types of experimental measurement.
