Effect of magnetic and physical nozzles on plasma thruster performance
Plasma cross-field diffusion in a magnetic nozzle is inhibited by increasing the magnetic field strength in a helicon plasma thruster attached to a pendulum thrust balance, while maintaining constant plasma density and electron temperature in the source tube, i.e. a constant plasma injection into the magnetic nozzle, where the field strength near the radio frequency (rf) antenna is less than 210G and the operating argon pressure in the vacuum chamber is 0.8mTorr. Inhibition of the cross-field...[Show more]
