Abstract:

This grant provides partial support for the purchase and fabrication of a vacuum chamber facility to be used in the calibration of electron and ion detectors. The detectors are space flight instruments that will be flown aboard sound rockets and future shuttle missions to study the physics of charged particle beam emission in the upper ionosphere and the dumping of trapped radiation by low frequency radio transmitter and lightning strokes.
