  6. Green Monopropellant Thruster TRL Maturation Scaling Effort

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: MDA12T008

    Diode-Pumped Alkali Lasers (DPALs) have great potential for high-energy lasers. Proper design of these systems is challenging because many interrelated processes impact their performance, and critical kinetic rate coefficients are not well known. In response, our team is developing a comprehensive physics-based analysis/design tool, and experimentally determining key kinetic rate coefficients. The ...
