Title: Development and testing of carbon-based ion optics for 30-cm ion thrusters
Authors: Snyder, John Steven
Brophy, John R.
Goebel, Dan M.
Beatty, John S.
De Pano, Michael K.
Keywords: carbon-carbon

Issue Date: Jul-2003
Publisher: Pasadena, CA : Jet Propulsion Laboratory, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, 2003.
Citation: 39th Joint Propulsion Conference, Huntsville, AL, July 20-23, 2003
Abstract: 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 materials.
