For this case, about
40% of the ions reach theends of the drift tubes.
About 2% are deposited at the neutral line points,and 58% are in the flowerpetals radiating out from the entrance to the drift tubes.
Lsp uses combinatorialgeometry of basic objectsto build physical spaces and material boundaries.
Target planes alongone drift tube are shown.
At r = 10 m:
