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: θ= tan 1 (Σ v y /Σ v z ) and (e) momentum efficiency: Σ m i v θ /Σ m i | v | .
