Simulation results from a combined calculation of two-dimensional radiation hydrodynamic and three-dimensional hybrid simulations. Ion density distribution in the unit of cm−3 on the plane x = 0 with (a) all four coils, (b) the three lower coils, and (c) two coils at t = 0.5 μs. Time-evolutions of (d) the deflection angle: \(\theta ={\tan }^{-1}({\rm{\Sigma }}{v}_{y}/{\rm{\Sigma }}{v}_{z})\) and (e) momentum efficiency: \({\rm{\Sigma }}{m}_{i}{v}_{\theta }/{\rm{\Sigma }}{m}_{i}|v|\).
