Development of a Neutral Wind and Temperature Instrument with Mass Spectrometry

Active Technology Project

Project Introduction

Development of wind and temperature measurement achieved with a fine angular measurement of the particle velocity distribution function. This work utilizes prototype custom electronics to drive the next generation micro-shutter array (NGMSA) that will be used in conjunction with a slit aperture to determine the angle of incoming neutral particles.
