AB  - A relevant task in designing high-brilliance light sources based on high-current linear accelerators (e.g. Energy Recovery Linacs (ERLs)) consists in systematic investigations of ion dynamics in the vacuum chamber of such machines. This is of high importance since the parasitic ions generated by the electron beam turned out to be a current-limiting factor for many synchrotron radiation sources. In particular, the planned high current operation at ERL facilities requires a precise analysis and an accurate development of appropriate measures for the suppression of ion-induced beam instabilities. The longitudinal transport of ions through the whole accelerator plays a key role for the establishment of the ion concentration in the machine. Using the Particle-in-Cell (PIC) method, we started redesigning our code MOEVE PIC Tracking in order to allow for the fast estimation of the effects of ions on the beam dynamics. For that, we exchanged the previously used Finite Difference (FD) method for the solution of Poisson’s equation within the PIC solver by a solver based on the Finite Element Method (FEM). Employing higher order FEM, we expect to gain improved convergence rates and thus lower computational times. We chose the Open Source Framework FEniCS for our new implementation.
