Preliminary Characterization of a Helicon Plasma Source for Space Propulsion
The design and construction of the Mini-Helicon Thruster Experiment (mHTX) is discussed. The magnets were designed to produce a maximum field strength of 0.18 T in a Helmholtz configuration so as toExpand

An analysis of energy balance in a helicon plasma source for space propulsion
This thesis covers work done on the mHTX@MIT helicon source as it relates to the analysis of power losses. A helicon plasma is a rather complex system with many potential loss mechanisms. Among theExpand
