New Students within @ERC_ZARATHUSTRA

Célian Boyé and Diego García Lahuerta, funded by the ERC Starting Grant Project ZARATHUSTRA and coordinated by UC3M Prof. Mario Merino, joined the PhD program in Aerospace Engineering. ZARATHUSTRA Project The future of deep space missions may lie in electrodeless plasma thrusters (EPTs), which generate and accelerate the plasma without any exposed electrodes. EPTs may … Continue reading New Students within @ERC_ZARATHUSTRA

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
