Paper Abstract

The concept of a second generation Hall-current plasma accelerator (ATON-thruster), which has record performance characteristics is described. A method is proposed for analyzing the operation parameters of the accelerator on the basis of its performance characteristics. The results of measurements of plasma parameters in the accelerator channel and outflowing jet are presented. Influence of backmoving of particles from vacuum chamber to thruster one has been discussed.
