Developed first ever Fully conservative 2D PIC/Monte-Carlo
code. Detailed investigation of the cathode ionization wave
have shown the self-similar behavior of the cathode wave.
2005 Investigated load effects using our 2D
multi-cell fluid code (50-100 2D macro-cell simulation).
Observed transition from a regular to stochastic regime of the
cell operation with a change of the load. Showed significant
difference between measurable current through wires and actual
cell current, explained non-uniformity of the power input
along the line, as it affected by the load.
2004 Kinetic simulation of a ramp discharge. Discovered
kind of instability - statistical instability of a micro-discharge. This kind of instability may be important to
other small systems (nano-systems, for example).
2004 First investigations of the cathode wave, using 2D/3D
PIC/Monte-Carlo simulations. First ever high resolution
simulations free of numerical diffusion.
2003 First ever fully kinetic simulation of a PDP discharge
using our 3D PIC/Monte-Carlo code. Numerical experiments with
a discharge related to phenomena of anode striations.
Investigated electron diffusion and found that in a strong
electric field electron diffusion together with ionization may
create interesting effects, like an avalanche sliding along
the surface, when electric field is directed at about 45
degrees to the surface where electrons end up.
2003 Developed first ever 3D PIC/Monte-Carlo code
for simulation the discharge in a PDP cell.
the only multi-cell fluid code, which takes into
account interaction between cells through distributed
elements, and can simulate hundreds or thousands of cells
Every cell can be considered as 1D or 2D. Ran actual simulation with 500 1D
macro-cells, and/or 20 2D macro-cells.
2002 Developed the
basic version of the 3D PIC/Monte-Carlo
code for investigation of the photon transport.
