Paper Abstract

The interaction between polymer of Delrin with nano-second pulse laser is investigated in laser plasma micro-propulsion. The coupling coefficient and specific impulse are measured respectively. The coupling coefficient about 42 dyne/W and specific impulse up to 646 s have been obtained. Moreover, the surface images after ablation have been observed. It is found that Delrin has less debris on ablation surface. This indicates that Delrin is a potential polymer material in laser plasma propulsion.
