Abstract

In this paper the temperature of the plasma inside an MPD thruster has been measured with and without applied magnetic field using spectroscopic measurement. The obtained spectra show the presence of C++, C+ and F atoms while the lines relative to C, F+ and F++ are out of scope. Using the measured line intensities, formulating three different sets of hypotheses and assuming that the corona equilibrium is valid for this plasma the temperature values have been calculated. The temperatures found are around 3 eV and show small variations with the application of magnetic field confirming.
