Variable frequency matching to a radiofrequency source immersed in vacuum

Charles, Christine; Boswell, Roderick; Bishop, Adrian

Description

A low-weight (0.12 kg) low-volume fixed ceramic capacitor impedance matching system is developed for frequency agile tuning of a radiofrequency (rf) Helicon plasma thruster. Three fixed groups of capacitors are directly mounted onto a two loop rf antenna
