High-speed imaging at 87,500 frames per second is used to characterize visible spoke and breathing mode oscillations in the H6 Hall thruster across a set of 25 operating conditions forming parameter sweeps in magnetic field strength |B| and discharge voltage VD at fixed mass flow rate. The study includes three sweeps, all at 10 mg/s anode flow rate, or about 10 A discharge current. The three sweeps are a range of peak channel magnetic fields from 70-230% of the optimal magnetic field strength… CONTINUE READING
