PhD Thesis

Design, development, and characterization of a microwave electrodeless plasma thruster


Mario Merino Martinez (UC3M) and Jaume Navarro Cavalle (UC3M)


Iterative design of an Electron-Cyclotron Resonance Plasma Thruster (ECRT) by performing numerical simulations with a Hybrid-PIC code (HYPHEN) and comparing them with the experimental results obtained in the EP2 vacuum chamber. Microwave Engineering and Plasma Diagnostics are also a fundamental part of this thesis.
