PhD Thesis

Emissive Langmuir Probe Theory with Application to Low Work Function Electrodynamic Tethers

Date of Defence: 21 November 2022


Gonzalo Sanchez-Arriaga (UC3M)


Focus of the research is modelling the interaction between Langmuir/emissive probes and the plasma environment. The main goal is to extend the Orbital Motion Theory (OMT) to tape geometries, which are favourable for Low Work-function Tethers (LWTs) applications for deorbiting satellites at the end of life.
