Using a direct simulation Monte Carlo approach to model collisions in a buffer gas cell

Abstract:

A direct simulation Monte Carlo (DSMC) method is applied to model collisions between He buffer gas atoms and ammonia molecules within a buffer gas cell. State-tostate cross sections, calculated as a function of collision energy, enable the inelastic collisions between He and NH3 to be considered explicitly. The inclusion of rotationalstate-changing collisions affects the translational temperature of the beam, indicating that elastic and inelastic processes should not be considered in isolatio...
