The transport of nanoparticles is simulated under conditions of plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition. A fluid model solves the spatial and periodic variation in plasma properties and a Monte Carlo method is applied to simulate momentum and charge transfer collisions between nanoparticles and surrounding plasma species. Electrostatic trapping and particle deposition are observed and simulation results reveal the motion of individual nanoparticles.
