ACCELERATION OF PLASMAS BY INDUCTIVELY GENERATED ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS
MICHIGAN UNIV ANN ARBOR
Pagination or Media Count:
The theory and experimental behavior of an induction electromagnetic accelerator are presented. The induction accelerator, one example of a general class of electrical systems which can be used to accelerate charged particles and ionized gases, employs a time-varying current in a coil to generate the force-producing electric and magnetic fields. The application of the induction accelerator for space propulsion is of particular interest. Author
