Feasibility of MEMS hollow cathode devices for micro-spacecraft plasma propulsion

Grubisic, Angelo N., Cranny, Andy and Gabriel, Stephen B. (2008) Feasibility of MEMS hollow cathode devices for micro-spacecraft plasma propulsion At 14th International Congress on Plasma Physics. 08 - 12 Sep 2008. 11 pp.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


Micro-satellites in the 1-20kg range with limited onboard resources would benefit greatly from miniaturized, low power electric propulsion systems. This paper reports on a feasibility study into the scaling and application of MEMS manufacturing techniques to produce such a micro-hollow cathode thruster
