I am currently working on my bachelor thesis, where I am calculating trajectory of electrons and ions in Hall Effect Ion Thruster. However, to be sure what I am calculating, I need to know how does the electromagnetic field look like.
I already have working code for visualization of electromagnetic field using streamslice, however I would like to take it to the next level.
I have created coordinates $x,$ $y$ and $z$ through meshgrid and computated magnetic field, which is set of not really pretty equations. Electric field points only towards the $z$ direction.
Here is the snappet of code that is generating picture below:
% Magnetic field plot_field = streamslice(x,y,z,Bx,By,Bz,0.02,0.02,0); set(plot_field,'Color','black','LineWidth',2); % Electric field hold on; quiver3(x_el,y_el,z_el,Ex,Ey,Ez,1,'r'); hold off; % Plot of discharge chamber [x_ch, y_ch, z_ch] = cylinder(0.4,40); z_ch(1,:) = -0.2; z_ch(2,:) = 0.2; hold on; plot_ch = surf(x_ch,y_ch,z_ch); hold off; set(plot_ch,... 'LineWidth',1,... 'FaceAlpha',0.5,... 'EdgeColor','black',... 'EdgeAlpha',0.6,... 'DiffuseStrength',1,... 'AmbientStrength',1);
This code generates the following,
I would like to create streamslice of the magnetic field in various degrees slope (let's say $45$), so I could see how does the field looks like not only when intersecting magnetic dipoles, but also in other locations. That would be great for study of particle motion.
