  • Snyder, John Steven; Brophy, John R.; Goebel, Dan M.; Beatty, John S.; De Pano, Michael K. (Pasadena, CA : Jet Propulsion Laboratory, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, 2003., 2003-07)
    Carbon-based ion optics have the potential to significantly increase the lifetime of state-of-the-art ion thrusters which use molybdenum optics because of the lower sputter yield and greater packing density of the carbon ...
  • Snyder, John Steven (Pasadena, CA : Jet Propulsion Laboratory, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, 2003., 2003-07)
    The primary life-limiting mechanism for state-of-the-art ion thrusters is erosion of the accelerator grid by charge-exchange ions produced in the plume of the thruster. This paper reviews carbon-based grid development ...
  • Murry, Michael (Pasadena, CA : Jet Propulsion Laboratory, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, 2012., 2012-08)
    In 2007, the National Research Council (NRC) released the Decadal Survey of Earth science. In the future decade, the survey identified 15 new space missions of significant scientific and application value for the National ...
