Hall Effect Thruster
Subject: Physics | Topics:

Hall-effect thruster is a kind of ion thruster in which the propellant is accelerated by a power field. Hall-effect thrusters trap electrons in a magnetic field after which it use the electrons in order to ionize propellant, efficiently accelerate the ions to generate thrust, and neutralize the ions inside the plume. Hall-effect thrusters are sometimes termed as Hall thrusters or maybe Hall-current thrusters.
