Coletti, Michele; Grubisic, Angelo; Gabriel, Stephen;

A model for the insert chemistry developed by the authors and based on the knowledge of the BaO – CaO – Al2O3 ternary system the ELT discharge cathode insert from the Deep Space 1 life test has been simulated. The computed data show a good agreement with the experimenta... View more
