1 Introduction, A lot of research effort has been spent over many years to improve FDTD methods to model wave propagation. in many different types of media in particular in non magnetized and magnetized plasma A thorough. overview of methods to model isotropic cold plasma can be found in 1 For more recent efforts on magnetized. plasma we refer to the work of Smithe 2 and enhancements along the lines of Smithe in 3 and 4 The. methods proposed in 2 and 3 are hybrid methods as Faraday s law is descretized explicitly classical FDTD. scheme and Ampere s law implicitly The method of 4 is the fully implicit method. In this work we construct the three dimentional FDTD model in order to describe electromagnetic wave. propagation in a magnetized toroidal plasma In order to examine the efficiency of the applied numerical. scheme the analysis of the reliability of the numerical results is necessary Therefore a rigorous stability. analysis is provided It is shown that the maximum stable Courant number in non magnetized cold plasma. is unity just as for free space 1 In the case of magnetized plasma the complexity of the implemented. numerical model does not allow to apply a standard analytical analysis that has been discussed in 5. However the problem is investigated numerically using the von Neumann method 6. 2 Basic equations, Including the driven equation of motion Maxwell s equations in the three dimensional case describing cold. magnetized plasma in time domain are,s Js 0 ps E s Js 3. Here the subscript s denotes the charged particle species in the plasma e i for electrons and ions respec. tively E is the electric field vector V m B 0 H is the magnetic flux density vector W b m2 H is. the magnetic field vector A m Js is the current density vector of a particular specie A m2 And s. is a collision frequency term The vacuum permeability 0 H m and vacuum permittivity 0 F m are. independent of the frequency The plasma frequency ps rad sec is defined as. where ns 1 m3 is the density qs C is the charge and ms kg is the mass of a given specie Further. by construction the cyclotron frequency is, where B0 is the background magnetic field oriented along the axis. Time Domain and Space Discretization, The set of equations 1 3 is applied to the FDTD mesh See Fig 1 7 Here the E field and the current.

density J field are defined at integer time steps while the H field is defined at half integer time steps 2. The resulting approximations are,Hn 1 2 Hn 1 2,0 s Hn 1 2 7. Figure 1 Yee cell The components Hr H Hz of the magnetic field H are localized at the center of the. edges of the Yee cell The method proposed here initially locates the Jr J and Jz components at the. same positions as the Er E and Ez components at the center of the Yee cell It has to be noted that. the spatial averaging is required to calcultate the central difference derivatives The averaged values of the. electric field components are marked with a star,3 Full Discrete Dispersion Relation. In this section the fully discretized dispersion relation f k 0 is derived Since the eigenfunctions of. the wave equation in cylindrical coordinate system cannot be presented as a plane wave with definite k and. the dispersion relation is obtained in the Cartsian coordinates The wave fields and plasma currents are. expanded as a Fourier series in space and time 9,E H Js exp j kx x ky y kz z t 9. If the wavelength is significanly shorter than the distance to the cylindrical axis the Cartesian dispersion. relation approximates the cylindrical one therefore the full discrete dispersion relation is. a21 a22 b23 1 a21 a23 b22 3 a22 a23 b21 1 k 2, a21 b22 b23 1 3 a22 b21 b23 21 22 a23 b21 b22 1 3 b24 10. 3 21 22 b44 0,a1 cos kr r 2 b1 sin kr r 2,a2 cos n 2 b2 sin n 2.

a3 cos kz z 2 b3 sin kz z 2,a4 cos t 2 b4 sin t 2, and k 2 b21 b22 b23 is a square of the discretized wave vector. 3 1 Vacuum case, In vacuum case when the plasma density is zero the discrete dispersion relation becomes. kr2 n r 2 kz2 k 2 2 c2 12, Demanding that real k always maps to real in 12 it requires the Courant condition. The expression 12 is a well known dispersion relation for electromagnetic waves in vacuum described in. 3 2 Nonmagnetized case, In the absence of a background magnetic field and if the collision frequency term is neglected the full discrete. dispersion relation transforms into the slow wave dispersion relation. kr2 n r 2 kz2 k 2 3 2 c2 14, The analysis of the 14 shows that the Courant condition in case of a nonmagnetized plasma is absolutely.

equivalent to the vacuum Courant condition 13,3 3 Magnetized plasma. In 1D case when the problem is uniform along the z and directions the discrete dispersion relation is. 1 k 4 1 3 21 22 b24 k 2 3 21 22 b44 0 15, Equation 15 gives two well known solutions One of them is the slow wave dispersion relation 14 and the. second one is the extraordinary wave 10,4 Reliability of the Numerical Results. The numerically obtained results should in principle reflect the results we get analytically Both results. however are not completely identical There are several reasons for this difference The impact of each of. the reasons questions whether the applied numerical scheme is accurate enough Usually the utility of the. numerical scheme is determined by a stability test One of the well known stability requirements is the. Courant condition It requires the time step t to have a specific bound on the grid step For example as it. is shown above the maximum stable Courant number in unmagnetized cold plasma is unity just as for the. vacuum case Though in case of magnetized plasma due to the complexity of the applied numerical scheme. the stability analysis is rather arduous It has been found empirically that the stability requirement in case. of non magnetized plasma is still valid for the magnetized case 12 There is however no analytical proof. We assume that when a high density nonuniform plasma possesses one or more ion species there exists. a plasma resonance area where it might be problematic to satisfy the Courant condition Therefore in the. following section we are going to determine the limit of the reliability of the numerical results. Figure 2 The numerical dispersion function of the extraordinary wave in the low frequency range in one. ion Deuterium plasma media The simulation parameters corresponding to this particular test are the. plasma electron density is equal to the deuterium D ion density ne nD 3 1019 1 m3 the background. magnetic field B0 is equal to 3 T The time step t is changing in order to provide the variation of the. argument of the tangent of the numerical frequency from 0 to 2 In order to perform the sufficient spatial. resolution 10 points per wavelength are used to determine the cell size 8 9. Here we choose to simulate the positive part of the extraordinary wave 15 in a low frequency range. According to the analytical dispersion relation it spreads from 0 to the low hybrid frequency LH. e i pi If the numerical dispersion function appears to be negative in the range where. the analytical dispersion function must be positive the numerical scheme may be unstable or lead to poor. numerical accuracy Fig 2 presents the results of the simulations The figure shows that the dispersion. numerical function acquires negative values the blue area near the lower hybrid resonance For the sake. of comparison in Fig 3 the upper limit of the time increment t is plotted next to the vacuum Courant. condition According to Fig 2 and Fig 3 the numerical dispersion function becomes negative above the. black dashed line thus limiting the reliability of the numerical results to the area below this dashed line. However Fig 3 shows that the vacuum Courant condition is definitely stronger than the upper limit of the. time increment mentioned above We would like the reader to pay attention to the area where the plasma. resonance occurs Fig 3 shows that the time step t tends towards zero exactly near the plasma resonance. area therefore it might be challenging to simulate in this range As a practical example the one dimensional. problem of the fast wave mode propagating through a three component plasma electron deuterium D. and hydrogen H ions with a nonuniform magnetic field is considered In Fig 4 the black line presents a. typical wave dispersion in a cold collisionless plasma The position of the plasma resonance where the wave. vector goes to infinity and the plasma cut off where the wave vector becomes equal to zero are also shown. in the figure On the left hand side of the resonance both the wave phase velocity and the wave length tend. towards zero In order to resolve the short wavelength on the left hand side of the resonance the grid step. should be much smaller than the wavelength r 1 kr On the other hand both the phase velocity and.

T o k a m a k R a d iu s m, Figure 4 The dispersion of the fast wave propagation through the three component plasma in a nonuniform. magnetic field, the wavelength tend toward infinity near the plasma cut off where the grid step cannot be larger than the. plasma column resolution requirement r 1 a where a is the width of a plasma region According to. the numerical example described above see Fig 3 it is not feasable to comply with the vacuum Courant. condition near the plasma resonance Therefore the suitable grid step must be carefully chosen The criteria. for choosing the size of the grid step may be obtained through the analysis of the dispersion relation. The next test is provided for the case where the collision frequency term is included The red line in. Fig 4 shows the fast wave dispersion The plasma resonance and cut off have disappeared due to the. presence of the collision frequency term 10 3 The values of the wavelength are bounded from below. and the phase velocity does not exceed the speed of light Hence the inclusion of the collision frequency. term gives us the possibility to overcome the stability problem near the plasma resonance area The collision. frequency term certainly provides the additional power dissipation near the evanescent layer the range. between the resonance and the cut off But for this particular test the magnitude of the collision frequency. term is chosen in such a way that the provided damping is negligible for the wave propagation outside the. evanescent layer,5 Numerical Stability, The numerical stability analysis can be provided based on the von Neumann method 6 The 1D problem. with the wave propagationg in the r direction with non zero components Er Ez H Jr Jz in magnetized. plasma is considered The set of the difference equation can be written in the general form. f uture past, where F represents a column vector containing all discretized electric magnetic and current field components. M is an amplification matrix The numerical scheme is stable if the eigenvalues lie on the unit circle in the. complex plane However if there are any losses assumed either due to the nature of the material or due to. the radiation phenomena some of the eigenvalues may be inside the unit circle In Fig 5 the eigenvalues. of the amplification matrix of the applied FDTD method in case of magnetized plasma are presented The. 1 0 0 5 0 0 0 5 1 0, Figure 5 Numerical stability test The eigenvalues of the amplification matrix The simulation parameters.
