how to add a gaussian heat resource

Please respond to the list. Yes, it can’t give you a Gaussian heat source. But reality is also not a Gaussian heat source. Temp/ region will give you something that will resemble a Gaussian heat source.

Possibly the ATC package can give more control over the exact profile.


Just to follow up, you should see in the atc two temperature examples an in.gaussianIC_ttm file. This prescribes initial electron distributions in the shape of a Gaussian, but you can modify it to be a heat source.
