One application of Penning traps is for Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance mass spectrometry (FT-ICR). Image Charge Detection is often used for detection.
SIMION examples include
- SIMION Example: icr - basic ICR example.
- SIMION Example: electrostatic_induction - image current measurement
- “malmberg_penning_trap” example (not yet officially added to SIMION) – uses the Poisson Solver in SIMION to characterize the effect of non-neutral plasma space-charge confined in a penning trap
