The performance of an OLED fabrication system strongly depends on the design of the evaporation cell-source. Therefore, necessity of the preceding study for cell source development of new concept is becoming increase. A development plan to substitute for experiment is applied as use simulation. In this study interpret behavior of a particle through DSMC techniques, and in this paper presenting a form to make so as to have better performance of the pointtype cell source which had a nozzle.
