Abstract:

Hardware and techniques have been demonstrated that allow controlled depths of phenolic removal from a tape-wrap carbon phenolic ablator material using a pulsed electron beam. Phenolic removal depths ranged from 5 mils to 15 mils with good uniformity over the sample area. Calculations based on the above experimental results indicate that with an optimized system, single pulse irradiation areas of up to 1000 sq cm are possible on the Physics International OWL II generator.
