Pagination or Media Count:
The current status of pulsed plasma accelerators and steady-state j X B accelerators is summarized. Emphasis is placed upon three areas of the current state of knowledge the basic inter action by which acceleration is accomplished the loss mechanisms which exist in a given type device and experimental results relevant to either of these two factors, as well as results of performance measurements.
- Electric and Ion Propulsion
- Plasma Physics and Magnetohydrodynamics
