Liang, Wei; Charles, Christine; Raymond, Luke C.; Stuchbery, Alex; Surakitbovorn, Kawin; Gu, Lei; Boswell, Roderick; Rivas-Davila, Juan


Progress in satellite technologies is ongoing and eventually finds applications back on Earth. Electric propulsion systems have been proven effective on large scale satellites (NASA DAWN) with better propellant efficiency than chemical or cold gas propulsion, and if miniaturized can be promising for long term operation of nano-satellites (e.g., CubeSats) in low Earth orbit or in deep space (NASA MarCO). However, the power supplies often used to power these electric thrusters, particularly those...[Show more]
