Axial-azimuthal, high-frequency modes from global linear-stability model of a Hall thruster

Enrique Bello-Benítez and Eduardo Ahedo published the Manuscript "Axial-azimuthal, high-frequency modes from global linear-stability model of a Hall thruster" (DOI: 10.1088/1361-6595/abde21) in Plasma Sources Science and Technology. Abstract Axial-azimuthal instabilities of a Hall-thruster plasma discharge are investigated using fluid model and a linear global stability approach, appropriate to the large axial inhomogeneity of the equilibrium … Continue reading Axial-azimuthal, high-frequency modes from global linear-stability model of a Hall thruster
