Planetary Group Seminar: Experimental and numerical analysis of MHD effects in weakely ionized space relevant plasmas (G. Herdrich)
Aug 16, 2017
14:00 - 15:00
Universität Stuttgart , Institut für Raumfahrtsysteme
Georg Herdrich is head of the Plasma Wind Tunnels and Electric Propulsion department of the Institute of Space Systems (IRS) at the university of Stuttgart. The department is specialized on electric propulsion systems, plasma measurement systems and test benches for reentry simulations as well as test branches for Interial electrostatic confinement devices for small electron and ion jets. In his talk he will give an overview of the IRS activities, with a focus on the experimental and numerical work on MHD effects in weakly ionized plasmas, which i.a. present on the lunar surface.
