Operating Radio Frequency Antennas Immersed in Vacuum: Implications for Ground-Testing Plasma Thrusters

West, Michael; Charles, Christine; Boswell, Roderick


Several of the challenges associated with operating the radio frequency (RF) antenna of the Helicon Double Layer Thruster (HDLT) prototype immersed in a vacuum have been discussed. Antennas immersed in vacuum can come into contact with the plasma and, if
