AB - Since 2012, the INFN ion source group has been undertaking an intense activity on numerical modelling of magnetically confined plasmas, presently carried out in the framework of the PANDORA project. The aim is the development of a predictive tool for the design of Electron Cyclotron Resonance (ECR) Ion Sources or Traps and ECR-based Charge Breeders, able to determine spatial density and energy distributions for both electrons and ions. The work mainly concerns the study of two aspects: on one hand, the interaction of an ion beam with a magnetized plasma; on the other hand, the microwave-to-plasma coupling, including the 3D plasma electrons dynamics in the confinement magnetic field and intra-particles collisions. This contribution describes the state-of-the-art of the work on both the fronts: an overview of the beam-plasma interaction, showing the latest results about the ECR-plasma density fine structure, as well as electron spatial temperature distribution will be shown.
