Improvements in helicon plasma thruster (hpt) for its evolution towards space application
Pablo Fajardo Peña (UC3M)
The proposed doctoral research aims at boosting the technology development of the Helicon Plasma Thruster by supporting and linking two development lines: an industrial line, whose goal is to increase the technology readiness level (TRL), focused in the consolidation of an Engineering model (EM), and a research line, whose primary goal is to better understand the underlying physical processes of the technology.
