Ion Detachment in the Helicon Double-Layer Thruster Exhaust Beam

Gesto, Fernando; Blackwell, Boyd; Charles, Christine; Boswell, Roderick


This study is devoted to simulating the orbits of the ions in the supersonic beam observed experimentally in the laboratory development of the helicon double-layer thruster. Given the cylindrical symmetry of the problem, the particle orbits are generated
