Esgee to present at 71st GEC in Portland

October 30th, 2018 helical resonator plasma simulation

Esgee Technologies will be attending the 71st Annual Gaseous Electronics Conference in Portland, Oregon next week, November 5 – 9. Join Esgee Tech’s Rochan Upadhyay for his talk on “Computational Modeling and Simulation of a Resonant Plasma Source.” He’ll demonstrate how electrical resonance can be exploited to extend low temperature, unmagnetized plasma sources beyond their typical operating limits. Esgee also supported the work being presented by Tokyo Electron America’s Peter Ventzek. He will present “Parametric Modeling and […]


Now Import Chemistries from Quantemol QDB

October 17th, 2018 OverViz QDB plasma chemistry

Quantemol’s QDB plasma chemistry library now supports the OverViz chemistry format. Simply export a chemistry from QDB in the OverViz format (includes both gas and surface chemistries), then load them directly into any of the OverViz modules for plasma simulation. OverViz users now have even more flexibility in defining complex chemistries for simulation, whether loading from VizData, importing from QDB, or creating their own. QDB membership required for QDB chemistry access. Contact us at info@esgeetech.com […]


Esgee to Present at SCTC 2018: Modeling of Spacecraft Charging in GEO orbit

June 13th, 2018 Satellite charge-up simulation

Esgee will present “High-fidelity Multi-Length Scale Modeling of Spacecraft Charging in GEO orbit” at the 15th Spacecraft Charging Technology Symposium 25-29 June, 2018 at the Integrated Research Center of Kobe University in Japan.   Abstract This study describes high-fidelity modeling of spacecraft charging in GEO orbit environment and the resulting incipient vacuum arcing on the spacecraft’s surface. A satellite in GEO environment is subject to continuous bombardment by highly energetic charged particles that accumulate over time on dielectric […]


Esgee to Present at SCTC 2018: Hybrid Model of RF Gridded Ion Thruster

June 13th, 2018 Hybrid Plasma Ion Thruster Simulation

Esgee will present “Hybrid Fluid-Particle Plasma Modeling of a Radio-Frequency Gridded Ion” at the 15th Spacecraft Charging Technology Symposium 25-29 June, 2018 at the Integrated Research Center of Kobe University in Japan.   Abstract We present a hybrid, fluid-particle plasma model that is used to investigate the plasma discharge and ion extraction behaviors of a radio-frequency gridded ion thruster (RIT). The hybrid approach combines a fluid formulation for plasma governing equations with a kinetic particle formulation […]


Esgee to Present at SAE World Congress 2018: Spark Plug Life Simulation

March 5th, 2018

  Esgee Technologies will present “Modeling of Electrode Erosion for Prediction of Spark Plug Lifetime” at the SAE International World Congress Experience 2018, April 10-12, at the Cobo Center in Detroit, Michigan.   Abstract: The maximum lifetime of a spark plug is limited by electrode erosion.  Over the course of millions of repeated sparking events, the electrode material ablates and the electrode gap increases which degrades performance.  Once a critical gap is reached, the spark […]
