Throughout most of the twentieth century, electric propulsion wasconsidered the technology of the future. Now, the future hasarrived.

This important new book explains the fundamentals of electricpropulsion for spacecraft and describes in detail the physics andcharacteristics of the two major electric thrusters in use today,ion and Hall thrusters. The authors provide an introduction toplasma physics in order to allow readers to understand the modelsand derivations used in determining electric thruster performance.They then go on to present detailed explanations of:

  • Thruster principles

  • Ion thruster plasma generators and accelerator grids

  • Hollow cathodes

  • Hall thrusters

  • Ion and Hall thruster plumes

  • Flight ion and Hall thrusters

Based largely on research and development performed at the JetPropulsion Laboratory (JPL) and complemented with scores of tables,figures, homework problems, and references, Fundamentals ofElectric Propulsion: Ion and Hall Thrusters is an indispensabletextbook for advanced undergraduate and graduate students who arepreparing to enter the aerospace industry. It also serves as anequally valuable resource for professional engineers already atwork in the field.

About the Author:

Dan M. Goebel, PhD, is a Senior Research Scientist in theAdvanced Propulsion Technology Group at JPL in Pasadena,California. Since joining JPL in 2003, he has worked on thedevelopment of high-efficiency ion thrusters, advanced long lifecathodes and grids, and electric-thruster life models for deepspace missions. He is a world-recognized expert in ion thrusters,cathodes, advanced plasma sources, microwave sources, high-voltageengineering, and pulsed power switches.?

Ira Katz, PhD, has led the Advanced Propulsion TechnologyGroup at NASA JPL since 2001. Group accomplishments during histenure include the development and testing of the 25 kW NEXIS ionthruster, successful completion of the world's longest electricthruster life test, development of technology and support forprecision formation flying missions (ST7, Lisa, TPF-I), andlaboratory investigations and computer modeling of fundamentalelectric propulsion physics. Dr. Katz is recognized as a worldleader in computer modeling of spacecraft-plasma interactions,spacecraft charging, and ion thruster physics.
