About Particle-PLUS ⁄ DL

Particle-PLUS/DL is an application to simulate various plasmas (such as magnetron, capacitive coupling, and inductive coupling) with surrogate models from deep learning. The simulation is enough quick to help parametric studies to optimize deposition and etching processes.

Development Steps of Deep Surrogate Model

Some surrogate models have already built by learning results of our CAE simulations using neural networks. Therefore users need not to prepare sample data for the machine learning. Particle-PLUS/DL including the models is released after verification.

Development Steps of Deep Surrogate Model

Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 10
  • RAM: 4 GB
  • Disk space: 2 GB
  • Display resolution: 1152 x 864
  • API: .NET Framework 4.6 (which is pre-installed to Windows 10)

Further Simulations

Some parameters are limited in Particle-PLUS/DL for reasons of learned values. If you want to simulate more complex plasma systems (, for example, magnetron CCP, magnetron ICP, multi-frequency CCP, and mixture gas plasma), please consider following simulators.
