Traveling-wave Stark deceleration is a wonderful tool to slow down polar molecules. Once the molecules are slowed down, the molecules can be interrogated by means of spectroscopy and information can be extracted which might lead to new discoveries. Before that can happen, the deceleration process needs to be optimized and losses such as non-adiabatic transitions must be minimized. A computer simulation can help to assist, predict and analyze particle behaviour. The simulation that was previously developed has been extended with a new non-adiabatic transition mechanism based on energy difference between energy states. With the new loss mechanism in place, results have shown that the losses can have a great impact on the spatial particle distribution within the confinement zone.
