I am wanting to use my magnetic field on a midplane for a cyclotron I
am designing which has two accelerating cavities. I first wanted to
run a simple test of a constant magnetic field to make sure the
particles would travel in a circle. I included the accelerating
cavities in my .in file but set the voltage to zero. The orbits that I
am getting look very odd (in attached image). The have curved portions
but in some regions of the field go straight. I will try to take the
cavities out of the .in file and run again, but I am wondering what is
going wrong?
