PhD Thesis

Experimental investigation of space plasma thrusters via data-driven analysis techniques;


Mario Merino Martínez (UC3M) and Filippo Terragni (UC3M)


This thesis investigates experimentally turbulence and plasma transport in Hall thrusters by applying state-of-the-art data analysis algorithms. The project will first develop a set of novel high-speed plasma diagnostic techniques to obtain the necessary data from the experimental setup, and after will implement and adapt to the collected data advanced techniques of modal analysis, with the aim of identifying the main intrinsic phenomena
