Lithium Coating to Remove Impurities in Vacuum Systems
Princeton Docket # 18-3401Removing water and impurities from the walls of the chamber of is an important consideration in sensitive high vacuum systems. Researchers at the Princeton Plasma Physics Lab have invented a new process to quickly release lithium vapor into these systems, using a porous stainless steel tube containing liquid lithium and a ...
New Design for Reducing Hall Thrusster Chamber Wall Erosion
Princeton Docket # 15-3066-1Researchers at Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory, Princeton University, have proposed a new design for extending the lifetime of hall thrusters.Hall thrusters have been established as a compact and reliable means for satellite applications. Erosion of the surfaces of such thrusters, however, has been a serious factor i...
