Gatsonis, Nikolaos A.
The project involves the design, analysis and fabrication of a setup for electric propulsion plume experiments and its integration onto WPI's large vacuum tank. The setup includes a fixed-stand to hold a plasma source and a probe-stand to hold a retarding potential analyzer. The probe-stand allows alignment of the probe with the plasma-source centerline and is placed on a manual translation table to allow measurements at various plume positions. The stands are designed to withstand forces and tank vibrations.
