Simulation and direct characterisation of electrostatic emission in externally wetted Ionic Liquid Ion Sources and its applications in space propulsion
Pablo Fajardo (UC3M), Jaume Navarro (UC3M), Daniel Pérez Grande (ienai SPACE) and Sara Correyero Plaza (ienai SPACE)
The PhD is encased in the development of advanced space propulsion systems based on electrospray technology at ienai SPACE. It is focused on two main aspects: simulation of externally wetted Ionic Liquid Ion Sources (ILIS) and direct characterisation of ILIS-based thrusters.
Industrial PhD granted by Comunity of Madrid, carried out within ienai SPACE
