5. Nano Field Emission Thruster:

The Nanoparticle Field Emission Thruster

  • It can electrostatically charge and accelerate nanoparticles as propellant
  • It could be tremendously flexible in controlling charge/mass (q/m) ratio to tune propulsion performance 
  • It uses scalable array (thousands to many millions) of micron-sized emitters. It is possible to have millions of emitters per square cm.

Advantages offered by nanoFET:

  • Ability for broader set of missions and mission phases.
  • Ability to decoupling of propulsion system design from the design of spacecraft.
