PhD Thesis

Kinetic modelling of plasma thruster plumes


Eduardo Ahedo Galilea (EP2 UC3M) and Mario Merino Martínez (EP2 UC3M) 


The research will be centered around the development of a 2D Particle In Cell code. Albeit the strong challenges linked to the large computational resources necessary, such a code will allow a strong insight in the complex physics of plasma plumes and their interactions with the thruster and spacecraft.
